HC Deb 29 July 1960 vol 627 c228W
Mr. McLaren

asked the Postmaster-General if he will give the dates and stages by which he expects to provide subscriber trunk dialling facilities to all telephone subscribers in the City and County of Bristol.

Mr. Bevins

Subscribers on the Bristol Central, Avonmouth, Filton and Bristol South exchanges already have the new facilities. I plan to provide them at the remaining exchanges as follows: Westbury-on-Trym, September, 1960; Bristol North and West, February, 1961; Kingswood and Bedminster, April, 1961; Fishponds, May, 1961; Easton, June, 1961, and Stoke Bishop, July, 1961. A small number of subscribers in the county of Bristol are served by the Whitchurch exchange which on present plans will have subscriber trunk dialling in 1965—on the extension of the present exchange.
