HC Deb 22 March 1950 vol 472 c113W
Mr. Kaberry

asked the Postmaster-General how many persons in the City of Leeds have applied for and still wait to receive telephones for either business or private premises; and what is the further delay anticipated in supplying them.

Mr. Ness Edwards

1,897 business and 4,190 residential applicants are waiting for service in the City of Leeds. 2,759 exchange lines were provided during the last 12 months, but in view of the severe restriction on capital expenditure I regret that I cannot say when it will be possible to clear the outstanding applications.
