§ Mr. BECKER
asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware of the case where 1575W 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?
§ Mr. HARTSHORN
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.
