HC Deb 14 March 1951 vol 485 cc1512-3
12. Mr. George Thomas

asked the Postmaster-General the date on which the new telephone exchange will operate in Cardiff.

Mr. Hobson

About the end of this year.

Mr. Thomas

I am much obliged.

13. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Post master-General whether he is aware of the growing waiting list for telephones in the Cardiff area; and how this list compares with those of other cities of comparable size to Cardiff.

Mr. Hobson

The proportion of waiting applicants at Cardiff is at present somewhat higher than at other towns of similar size. This is due to the diversion of engineering staff to work on the new automatic exchange. There should be substantial improvement when the new exchange is opened.
