HC Deb 20 July 1982 vol 28 cc142-3W
Mr. Craigen

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what representations he has received regarding the introduction of charges for telephone inquiries from organisations representing the blind and the disabled; and if he will discuss the effect of this proposal with British Telecom.

Mr. Rossi

No such representations have been received by the Department. I understand, however, that British Telecom intends to make arrangements to reimburse blind and disabled inquirers and will be holding discussions with its representative organisations.
