HC Deb 22 March 1961 vol 637 cc46-7W
71. Mr. Morris

asked the Postmaster-General how many telephone exchanges in Wales have bilingual telephone operators available when needed.

Mr. Bevins

The arrangements at all exchanges in Wales provide that bilingual operators are readily available. There are bilingual operators on the staff of 45 out of a total of 57 exchanges. At the remaining twelve, calls made in Welsh are extended to nearby exchanges where bilingual operators are available. If the hon. Member has any particular difficulty in mind, I will gladly make inquiry.
