A direct reply arrives from BT
In response to correspondent John Phillips (Write Back, December 14), I would like to clear up any potential confusion on the publication and distribution of BT's Phone Book.
BT produces four editions of The Phone Book for Northern Ireland, and each is distributed at different times throughout the year. We are not currently distributing any books in Northern Ireland; therefore we believe Mr Phillips is referring to a directory supplied by a publisher other than BT.
BT used to own Yell, the publishers of Yellow Pages, but sold the company some years back. Yellow Pages and The Phone Book are produced by two separate companies and have no connection with one another.
