§ 67. Mr. Ness Edwards
asked the Postmaster-General to what extent, in view of the cut in the Post Office capital investment programme, he has had to revise his estimate of the progress of telephone automation; and what is his revised estimate of the date when automation may be completed.
§ Mr. K. Thompson
The right hon. Member will be glad to know that for subscriber trunk dialling we are still working to the timetable set out in Cmnd. 436, and that we hope to replace the remaining manual exchanges by 1970.
