HC Deb 22 May 1957 vol 570 c75W
16. Mr. Hurd

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware of the constant confusion between telephone calls from London and elsewhere to Chieveley, near Newbury, and Cheveley, near Newmarket; and if he will make some clear distinction in the naming of these exchanges.

Mr. K. Thompson:

I would like to thank my hon. Friend for drawing attention to this difficulty. I am arranging for the exchanges Chieveley (near Newbury) and Cheveley (near Newmarket) to be given distinguishing suffixes in the routing instructions held by telephone operators. This, I hope, will overcome the difficulty.
