HC Deb 26 June 1939 vol 349 c20
40. Mr. Hannah

asked the Postmaster- General whether he is aware of grave in convenience to professional men in Bradley, Bilston, from the delay in telephone installation; and can he say when this will be remedied?

The Postmaster-General (Major Tryon)

There are at present two applicants awaiting telephone service in Bradley, Bilston. Owing to unexpectedly heavy demands for telephone service at Bilston, the line plant in this area has become temporarily exhausted. Additional plant is being provided as rapidly as possible, but I am afraid it may be some time before it is ready for service. It may be possible, however, to provide service for the two waiting applicants before this, if suitable line plant at present in use becomes available.
