§ Mr. EDWARD WOOD
asked the Postmaster-General what is the requisite 590W minimum number of subscribers for the establishment of a telephone service; and whether he is yet in a position to state the result of his further inquiries as to the establishment of such a service for the Pateley Bridge district?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
The minimum number of subscribers required to justify the establishment of a telephone exchange depends mainly on the estimated expenses. I am glad to say that I have now been able to authorise the provision of an exchange at Pateley Bridge.
