asked the Assistant Postmaster-General what alteration he is making in those rentals which are fixed by agreement, for telegraph and other private wires and for exchange line services, that is, those not covered by Telephone Amendment (No. 2) Regulations, 1952.
It is proposed in the comparatively limited number of special installations referred to which are not covered by the Telephone Regulations to increase, as from 1st July, 1952, the rentals up to 50 per cent. over the prewar rates. This is the same basis as is being applied to installations covered by the Regulations.
