HC Deb 16 February 1970 vol 796 c3W
48. Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications if he will give a general direction to the Post Office to limit the introduction of all-figure telephone numbers, in view of the increased difficulty in remembering them and of dialling them correctly, to exchanges where initials cannot be used.

Mr. Pentland

I do not think such an action would be appropriate particularly as all-figure numbering is required as the service expands.
