HC Deb 05 July 1920 vol 131 c1049W

asked the Postmaster-General whether the delay in providing new plant for telephone extension, which is urgently needed to promote business at the present time, is due to congestion at the manufacturers or to conditions in respect to labour; whether he is aware that there is much unemployment in the country; and whether, under these circumstances, he will try to extend the list of firms which manufacture for the Post Office?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave on the 30th June to a question asked by the hon. Member for Keighley (Mr. Clough).
