§ Rev. Ian Paisley
asked the Secretary of State for Industry what direction he has given to the Post Office to mitigate the effects of the present pricing policy on the telephone service to the public.
§ Mr. Les Huckfield
None. A direction would not be appropriate. The present policy is to set tariffs at a level which allows the business to operate on a sound financial basis, in the interests of the taxpayer and the public generally.
