§ Sir J. D. REES
asked the Postmaster-General whether the delay previously experienced in supplying telephones in Nottingham in cases of removal of business is still occurring, or whether those who are; now removing in that city may expect 806W connection to be made within reasonable, and within what, time?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
Some delay still occurs in carrying out a few removal orders in Nottingham owing to the shortage of underground plant. A general extension of the underground system is, however, in hand, and is being completed as rapidly as possible. In the meantime temporary arrangements are being made whenever possible in cases of removal.
