asked the Postmaster-General how many of the 330,000 new telephones provided by the Post Office last year were for private individuals; how many were for Government offices; and how many for local authorities.

Of the net growth of 330,000 telephones last year, 135,000 were for residential subscribers. I regret that the other information desired by the hon. and gallant Member is not readily available.

Who pays for the installation of Government telephones? Is it the Department concerned or the Post Office?
