Departmental Telephone Services

Volume 481: debated on Tuesday 21 October 2008

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what agencies or units for which his Department is responsible require the public to make telephone calls to them on numbers which charge more than the national call rate; and how much income each such agency derived from such charges in each of the last three years. (225747)

[holding answer 9 October 2008]: From the central records available the Department has no public telephone contact numbers which charge more than the standard BT national call rate. The Department does not receive any income from its contact numbers.

I have asked the Chief Executives of the Department’s agencies to respond direct to my hon. Friend.
