HC Deb 12 March 1958 vol 584 c410
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.
