HC Deb 15 May 1924 vol 173 cc1574-5W

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware of the case where Mr. E. F. Young, of 118, St. Leonard's Road, East Sheen, S.W.14, has applied for a telephone to be put on to his house; that his Department has refused to supply him with a telephone, as it is stated that the cable is full; and will he take steps to see that East Sheen is better served, and that all demands for telephones can be met?


Owing to the rapid telephone development in the neighbourhood, no spare wires are at present available for supplying Mr. Young with a service. An offer was made to meet his requirements in about six weeks by a rearrangement of the existing cables, but Mr. Young preferred to await the completion of the additional underground cable work which has been planned with a view to meeting all the demands for telephone service in this district.
