HC Deb 14 November 1950 vol 480 cc152-3W
Wing Commander Bullus

asked the Postmaster-General the number of shared telephone lines in service in the Borough of Wembley; and how many of these are shared compulsorily.

Mr. Ness Edwards

One thousand and seventy-four subscribers in the areas served by the Wembley, Corinthian and Arnold exchanges are sharing telephone lines. Since January, 1948, new and removing residential subscribers have been under obligation to share their telephone. I am glad that a number of other subscribers have voluntarily agreed to share, but details are not available.
