HC Deb 27 February 1948 vol 447 c372W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Postmaster-General if he will look into the case of a dental surgeon, whose name has been submitted to him, and who has been obliged to move his residential address, but is refused the transfer of his telephone to a new address less than half mile away, and as the telephone is a necessity for the work of a dental surgeon, if he will take steps to supply this need.

Mr. Wilfred Paling

The gentleman in question has not been refused the transfer of his telephone, but unfortunately exclusive service cannot be provided at his new address owing to lack of spare wires in the underground cable serving the locality. He has been offered shared service with a neighbour and I hope that this will be acceptable to him for the present.
