HC Deb 10 May 1950 vol 475 c54W
28. Mr. Gibson

asked the Postmaster-General how many outstanding applications for the installation of telephones there are in the Clapham area; and how soon it will be possible to extend the service at the Macaulay exchange to meet fully the local demand for telephones.

Mr. Ness Edwards
