HC Deb 09 December 1953 vol 521 cc241-2W
Mr. Gower

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General how many applications for telephones in the borough of Barry are still outstanding; what was the comparable figure a year ago; and what progress he anticipates during this year in meeting requirements.

Mr. Gammans

279 applications are outstanding compared with 298 a year ago. 125 new applications were received during this period. 120 applicants have been connected so far this year and we hope to increase the number to 200 next year.
