HC Deb 28 April 1936 vol 311 cc732-3

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that a would-be telephone subscriber in High-gate, N.6, has been informed by his Department that seven to ten days' notice is required before installation of a telephone; and, in view of the fact that the residence is efficiently wired already, will he endeavour to expedite the work?


Ninety per cent. of the applications for telephone service in London are met within a week, and, where the premises are already wired, the service can usually be provided in a few hours. I should be glad if my hon. Friend would be so good as to give me particulars of the case he raises, so that I may make inquiries.
