HC Deb 03 November 1954 vol 532 cc357-8
37. Mr. Pryde

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General when his Department will be able to accept applications for telephones at Mid-Calder, Midlothian.

Mr. Gammans

We are of course accepting applications all the time, and there were 11 people connected during the past 12 months. The exchange will be enlarged in the New Year and more cable schemes have been planned. I anticipate this will enable us to connect more people next year.

Mr. Pryde

Will the Minister examine this position very closely and try to get a high priority for this area?

Mr. Gammans

Yes, Sir, I will certainly do the best for the hon. Gentleman that I can.

Forward to
