§ 17. Commander Donaldson
asked the Postmaster-General if he will state to the nearest convenient date the number of telephone subscribers in Roxburghshire, Selkirkshire and Peeblesshire; and how many applicants are awaking the installation of telephones in each of the three counties.
§ Mr. Bevins
The number of subscribers on 28th February was 6,771. The number of applications under inquiry or in course of being met were 27 in Roxburghshire, 9 in Selkirkshire and 10 in Peeblesshire. No applications were held up by shortage of plant. In the past 12 months 396 telephones were installed.
