§ Mr. ROSE
asked the Postmaster-General if his attention has been directed to the case of Miss Agnes Imlay, of 5, Gloucester Place, Greenwich Park, S.E.10, who was asked to pay a deposit of £5 for telephone calls instead of the usual £l, because she was an actress, it not being held by the telephone authorities that there was anything against her except the fact that she was an actress; and is there any Post Office regulation which authorises officials to differentiate between actors and actresses and citizens following any other calling or profession?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
I have made inquiry in this case and I find that a deposit of £5 was originally asked for under a misapprehension, but an agreement subject to a deposit of £l has since been accepted. The reply to the second part of the question is in the negative.
