HC Deb 28 March 1938 vol 333 cc1622-3
37. Mr. Lewis

asked the Postmaster-General how many applications were received in Colchester for new telephone lines in each of the past five years, respectively?

The Postmaster-General (Major Tryon)

The number of applications in each of the last five years is as follows:

1933 142
1934 182
1935 252
1936 321
1937 299

I am glad to be able to inform my hon. Friend that owing to a number of cessations in recent months all outstanding applications in Colchester are being met at once.
