HC Deb 01 August 1952 vol 504 cc211-2W
Mr. Edward Davies

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General how many applications for telephones are still outstanding in Stoke-on-Trent; and what pogress is being made to overtake the arrears.

Mr. Gammans

One thousand, nine hundred and fifteen on the 30th June, 1952. Three hundred and thirty-one applications have been met since the 1st of January. It will, I hope, be possible to increase this rate of provision when additional equipment, now being installed, is brought into use in the latter part of this year.
