Mr. Bevins

Since March of last year London subscribers on STD exchanges have been able to dial calls to Paris. As from April they will be able to dial direct to all large towns and cities in France and most exchanges in Belgium. the Netherlands, Switzerland and Western Germany. In the autumn of this year the facility will be extended to subscribers in Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester. Glasgow and Edinburgh. International subscriber dialling to other European countries such as Italy and Scandinavia will follow as soon as possible.
