HC Deb 17 February 1972 vol 831 c154W
Mr. John Wells

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will take steps to exempt telex machines from the ban on use of electricity for commercial purposes on off-days in view of the importance to exporters.

Mr. John Davies

I have decided that an order exempting telex machines from directions under Regulation 17(2) should be made, because they are an important part of the country's communications system.
