HC Deb 01 February 1937 vol 319 cc1276-7
22. Sir Reginald Blair

asked the Postmaster-General when it is proposed to change the Speedwell exchange to the automatic system?

Major Tryon

Arrangements are in hand for the extension of the Speedwell exchange building to accommodate automatic plant; and I hope that it will be possible to effect the transfer to automatic working at some date in 1939.

Sir R. Blair

In the meantime, can the Postmaster-General take steps to ensure greater accuracy in this exchange?

Major Tryon

We are introducing an automatic exchange which the hon. Member will find an improvement.
