HC Deb 06 July 1920 vol 131 cc1257-8W

Sir H. BRITTAIN asked the Postmaster-General whether he can inform the House as to the number of telephone subscribers who are still awaiting the official London telephone directory; what was the date of the earliest deliveries of this issue; and when it is expected that every subscriber will have received a copy?

Mr. ILLINGWORTH: The issue was begun on 19th April, and will, I hope, be completed during the course of this week. Rather less than 27,000 subscribers, or about one-seventh of the total number, have still to be supplied with copies.
