HC Deb 07 February 1938 vol 331 c673
66. Mr. Duncan

asked the Postmaster-General on what dates this year it is expected that the Park and Ladbroke telephone exchanges will be changed over to automatic working; and whether there will be an official opening in each case so that subscribers may have an opportunity of visiting the exchange and seeing the automatic apparatus working?

Major Tryon

The Park and Ladbroke automatic exchanges will be opened in about 12 months' time. No decision has been taken as to whether there will be official opening ceremonies, but visitors will be welcome at both the new exchanges when normal working conditions obtain.
