HC Deb 01 February 1961 vol 633 cc127-8W
83. Mr. Snow

asked the Postmaster-General why there are continued and lengthy delays in supplying equipment to the Lichfield Telephone Exchange, and in the laying of additional cable; and whether he will give instructions for this additional provision of telephone facilities to be expedited.

Mr. Bevins:

The pace of development here is dependent on the resources at my disposal, and I am sorry that it has not been possible to meet the need at Lichfield more quickly. Additional cables are now being laid and a temporary relief exchange will be ready by July. The new automatic exchange will be opened early next year.
