§ 62. Mr. LIDDALL
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 733 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?
§ Sir W. WOMERSLEY
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.
