HC Deb 10 July 1957 vol 573 c43W
59. Mr. M. Lindsay

asked the Postmaster-General how many householders in the borough of Solihull are waiting for a telephone; and by approximately what date does he expect all these installations to be completed.

Mr. Marples

One thousand, one hundred and fifty-seven. I hope that the majority of these will be connected during the next twelve months; but new plant is needed and I cannot say when all the applications will be met.
