Motion text

That this House is pleased to note BT's decision to scrap the current fee applicable when calling the 0870 and 0845 numbers used by many banks, the NHS, government departments and utility companies; urges other telecommunications companies to recognise that to charge for such essential calls is an unfair anomaly in need of being rectified; and calls on the Department of Health to bring forward proposals to put into statute guidance preventing GPs' surgeries and health service organisations from charging more than the cost of a local call.
