HC Deb 07 December 1936 vol 318 c1649W

asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to the delay in the carrying out of new telephone installations and the transfer of existing telephones in the North Midlands area; and whether he will make extended arrangements to deal more promptly with the increased demand for this form of public utility?


I am not aware of any general delay, and in this connection I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given to the hon. Member for Willesden West (Mr. Viant) on 5th November. If the hon. Member will furnish particulars of any instances of delay which he has in mind I shall be pleased to make inquiry with a view to speeding up the installation.
