EDM | Premium Rate Telephone Numbers

Posted on: 12th July 2011

Andrew George MP has signed EDM number 2035 in 2010-11, proposed by Ian Swales on 05/07/2011.

The motion reads,

That this House condemns the use of premium rate telephone numbers for job centres and other public services; notes that the use of 0845 and 0870 numbers significantly increases the cost to the caller; and urges the Government to provide an alternative landline number for those with pre-paid mobile or landline telephones.
