§ 100. Mr. Osborne
asked the Postmaster-General, in view of the widespread dissatisfaction with the delay in installing new telephone lines, what steps is he taking to get the most urgent priority for wires and cables, and other materials necessary; and what supply in particular is causing the delays.
§ Mr. Ness Edwards
Delay in installing new telephone lines is due to the restriction of Government expenditure at home and to the need for expanding exports As soon as this situation eases, any priorities necessary for Post Office supplies will be obtained.
