§ 7. Sir W. Darling
asked the Postmaster-General how many teleprinter installations there are in England, Scotland and Wales; how many in private business; how many in Government Departments; and what is the earliest date possible for further installations for firms engaged in the export trade.
§ Mr. Wilfred Paling
There are approximately 11,750 Post Office teleprinters in use in Great Britain, 2,500 by private renters and the remainder by Government Departments. At present, there is no difficulty in meeting applications for private teleprinter services, subject to availability of line plant.
