asked the Postmaster-General whether he will make arrangements for Members of Parliament, who wish to do so, to see the operation of a telephone exchange?

I shall be pleased to do this. The nearest manual exchange to the House of Commons is Victoria Exchange, and I have made arrangements that any Member of Parliament who wishes to see the exchange shall be shown round. The busiest hours when the exchange can be seen at full operation are between 10 a.m. and 12 noon, and between 3 and 4 p.m. It will be convenient if Members would send a telephone message in advance to the supervisor, but this is not essential. I may add that the Telephone Directory contains a. cordial invitation to every subscriber to visit his own exchange.
