26. Mr. Gibson (for Mr. Ridley)
asked the Postmaster-General what progress is being made with the installation of an automatic telephone exchange in the Clay Cross area and when the work is likely to be complete?
§ Major Tryon
The bulk of the equipment has been installed, and the remaining work is being pressed forward. While it is not yet possible to give a precise date, it is anticipated that the new exchange will be opened in the near future.
