asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that the hours from 9.30 p.m. and 9 a.m. are slack hours in the long distance telephone calls to Scotland; and if he will extend the cheap rate for long distance calls to Scotland, from 6.30 p.m. to 9.30 p.m. as at present to 6.30 p.m. to 9 a.m.

At the moment I cannot add to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Dorset, North (Mr. Crouch) on the 14th June.
