HC Deb 16 February 1955 vol 537 cc61-2W
111. Mr. Owen

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General how many applicants for telephone service in the urban area of Ashington and the borough of Morpeth, respectively, are on his list; and what action is being taken to meet their request for this service.

Mr. Gammans

There are 63 applicants at Ashington and 26 at Morpeth. One hundred and nineteen were connected in these two places in 1954, and we hope to increase the figure to 175 this year.
