Mr. Allen

To ask the Lord President of the Council when he expects that hon. Members will be able to telephone agreed numbers in the European Community via the House of Commons telephone service without charge.

The Services Committee is expected to consider at its next meeting a proposal to establish direct telecommunications links with a number of European Community exchanges. If the proposal is accepted, the necessary work to establish the connections could be completed a short time thereafter.
