§ 64. Mr. Meacher
asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications what is the estimated cost of installing a telephone for all old people over retirement age who do not at present possess one; what is the estimated installation cost for the elderly housebound alone; and what is the estimated cost for those who are aged 70 years or over, only.
§ Mr. Chataway
Information on which to base estimates is not available. Telephones connected to the public network are provided by the Post Office at standard tariffs.
