HC Deb 12 November 1952 vol 507 c63W
106. Mr. M. Lindsay

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether he is aware that Mr. J. A. Gregory, of 12, Hayesoft Avenue, Birmingham, 8, has been waiting for a telephone for six years and six months; and when he can expect its installation.

Mr. Gammans

I am sorry that Mr. Gregory has been waiting so long. The delay has been unavoidable because there has been no line available in the local cable. Work on a new cable scheme has begun, but I regret that it will probably be the latter part of next year before Mr. Gregory can be put on the telephone.
