Original Motion Text

That this House notes the announcement of British Telecom's latest figures which show that British Telecom makes a profit of more than ú100 per second, deplores the fact that in spite of phenomenal profits, British Telecom continues to place a financial burden on Scotland's elderly with the implementation of standing charges; and calls upon British Telecom to scrap these charges immediately and to undertake a review of all charges affecting the elderly, who in many cases view the telephone as a lifeline.
