§ 2. Mr. Tilney
asked the Postmaster-General whether he will seek to make arrangements with the Government of the Republic of Ireland for credit cards issued by him to be accepted for calls made from 989 Ireland to a British telephone number, aid to accept reverse charge calls made horn Ireland to Great Britain.
§ Mr. Joseph Slater
My right hon. Friend bas already done so; but the Government of the Irish Republic have not so far been able to agree.
§ Mr. Tilney
Surely it would be possible to put into action unilaterally in this country the proposals to accept reverse charge calls?
§ Mr. Slater
Yes. The Irish Republic were approached on both counts in October, 1965, and they have been asked for a decision on a number of occasions since then, but without success. The most recent reminder was on 6th July, 1967. This matter is under consideration.
