HC Deb 14 December 1950 vol 482 c213W
Major W. W. Hicks-Beach

asked the Postmaster-General what capital expenditure would be required to complete outstanding orders for telephones in Cheltenham.

Mr. Ness Edwards

It is not practicable to make any reliable assessment in the case quoted. Capital expenditure designed to clear up outstanding orders must also provide for development, and for telephone works in the neighbouring areas which are closely interlocked.
