HC Deb 25 April 1968 vol 763 c66W
51. Mr. Goodhew

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will now amend the Telephone Regulations 1965, Part VIII, Paragraph 40, by limiting the time during which subscribers' deposits may be retained.

Mr. Joseph Slater

No. Local Managers have full discretion to refund deposits when they are satisfied that there is no longer any need to guard against incurring bad debts.
