§ 30. Mr. Barter
asked the Postmaster-General what is the extent of the waiting list for telephones on the Waxlow and Perivale exchanges, respectively; and when he anticipates being able to provide services for those still waiting.
§ Mr. Marples
The outstanding applications on 1st January were 312 at Waxlow and 580 at Perivale, of which 55 and 300, respectively, were under inquiry or in course of being met. I cannot say when service will be provided for all the outstanding applicants, but we expect to join up this year about 1,000 telephones in these two areas.
