HC Deb 21 May 1947 vol 437 c2301
1. Squadron-Leader Sir Gifford Fox

asked the Postmaster-General, following his communication to the hon. Member for Henley in May, 1946, that a new telephone cable from Kingston Blount to Hampton would be laid within a few months, when it is now anticipated this work will be completed.

The Postmaster-General (Mr. Wilfred Paling)

I am sorry that owing to the large number of similar cables required throughout the country and to the shortage of materials, I am still not able to say when this particular cable can he provided.

Sir G. Fox

Will the Postmaster-General inform the Hampton parish council that this is part of the programme of "Let Us Face The Future"?
