§ Major LLOYD-GREAME
asked the Postmaster General whether he is aware that many residents in Mill Hill are unable to obtain telephone installations, although the main wires or cables are laid along the roads in which their houses are situate; whether he is aware that the delay is a constant and serious inconvenience to these residents; and whether he will give instructions to secure the early installation of instruments in such cases?
§ Mr. ILLINGWORTH
The difficulty in providing telephone service at Mill Hill is due to the fact that all the wires in the underground cable between Mill Hill and the Finchley Exchange are in use. The substitution of a larger cable is proposed, but I fear that some little time must elapse before the requirements of the district can be met.
