HL Deb 03 November 1998 vol 594 c39WA
Lord Avebury

asked the Chairman of Committees:

Whether he will make arrangements for telephone calls within the European Union to be possible from Peers' offices. [HL3560]

The Chairman of Committees (Lord Boston of Faversham)

It is possible already for Peers to make direct calls to certain European institutions, whose telephone numbers are listed at the back of the internal directory. However, it is not the policy of either House of Parliament to provide free calls to other European institutions or individual people.
