HC Deb 25 October 1950 vol 478 c359W
89. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Postmaster-General when sufficient labour is likely to be available for the installation of telephones to those requiring them.

Mr. Ness Edwards

Expenditure on labour and stores for installing telephones has to be met from the limited capital resources available to the Post Office. So long as these resources continue to be restricted, I regret that I cannot say when all outstanding demands for service will be completed.
