§ 28. Captain JAMES MacANDREW
asked the Postmaster-General the number of telephones which were not the property of subscribers and the revenue collected from them in the financial years 1912–13 and 1932–33?
§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Sir Kingsley Wood)
I understand that the hon. Member has in mind telephones at 749 public call offices. The figures for 1913–14 and 1932–33, are 1913–14, call office telephones, 13,678, revenue £230,759; 1932–33, call office telephones 38,399, revenue £1,257,561. The latter figure includes £362,020 in respect of trunk fees. The revenue figures for the year 1912–13 are not available, and those for 1913–14 only in respect of local call fees.
