HC Deb 01 April 1946 vol 421 c138W
Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General the number of telephone subscribers operated from the Springpark exchange: and the total staff and the average number on switchboard duty at normal and peak hours, respectively.

Mr. Burke:

Three thousand five hundred and seventy subscribers' lines work on Springpark Exchange, and 16 full time and 17 part time operators are employed there. The number of staff on duty at the switchboard rises and falls with the flow of traffic; it varies from four at the beginning of the day to ten in the peak periods.
