‘Lo-call’ telephone numbers


Sir, – Why is it that the Revenue Commissioners and other public services frequently only advertise a “lo-call” telephone number rather than a normal landline number? Most mobile phone packages now include free landline calls within their bundles but 1890 and similar “cheap” numbers are not included in this.

Give us the choice and advertise both. I don’t like to have to pay to pay my tax! – Is mise,
