HC Deb 19 November 1952 vol 507 cc172-3W
Mr. Burden

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General how many persons are awaiting telephones on the Gillingham, Kent, exchange; and what action be is taking in the matter.

Mr. Gammans

Three hundred and sixty-nine applications were outstanding on 30th September, 1952. Additional exchange equipment sufficient to supply all these applications will be ready for service about the middle of next year. New cables are also needed, and although some are nearly ready for service, it will unfortunately be some time, because of our limited resources, before sufficient new cables can be provided to enable all existing applications to be met.
