§ 22. Wing Commander Bullus
asked the Postmaster-General how many applicants in Wembley are still waiting for the telephone service; and what is the longest time for which any have waited.
§ Mr. Bevins
I am glad to say that in Wembley no applications for telephones are held up by shortage of lines or equipment; there are 502 orders under enquiry or being me. The oldest application is dated December last year and that is held up awaiting the customer's instructions.
§ Wing Commander Bullus
While thanking my right hon. Friend for that encouraging information, may I ask him how long it will take to clear the backlog?
