HC Deb 16 February 1955 vol 537 c62W
113. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General the basis on which priority is granted in Cardiff to various applicants for a private telephone service; and the categories of people who are entitled to claim this priority.

Mr. Gammans

The general arrangement, in Cardiff as elsewhere, is that where we cannot give service on demand and subject to economic use of engineering labour residential subscribers are connected in order of application, except that removing subscribers have priority over new applicants and telephone managers have discretion to give a measure of priority in cases of special need.
