HC Deb 06 May 1953 vol 515 c387
62. Mr. Gibson

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General when he expects the enlargement of the Macaulay telephone exchange to be completed; and how long it will be before the large number of new subscribers waiting for telephones can expect to be connected.

Mr. Gammans

The extension will be brought into service about the end of this month, after testing is completed. Of the 580 applicants at present waiting for telephones in this area, about half will be connected within the next month or two.

Mr. Gibson
