§ 96. Mr. Maudling
asked the Postmaster-General if it was with his approval that the Finance Branch of the London Telecommunications Region announced recently that as capital is not being spent quickly enough they would encourage capital expenditure during the remainder of the current financial year.
§ Mr. Ness Edwards
The statement referred to by the hon. Member appeared in the Regional Monthly Progress Bulletin. It was based on a justified and timely reminder from headquarters that the region was falling behind schedule on the works covered by its annual allotment for telephone development.
