§ 87 and 88. Mr. Randall
ask the Postmaster-General what is the average length of time that applications for telephones remain on the order list in the London Centre Area, the London City Area, and the London North West Area, respectively;
(2) what is the longest outstanding application for telephone service in the London Centre Area, the London City Area, and the London North West Area, respectively.
§ Mr. Bevins
In the City and Centre Areas of London most orders are completed within eight weeks, and in the North West Area in about three weeks. The time varies with the size and type of the equipment required in individual cases.
In none of these areas is there any outstanding applications, in the sense of applications held up because of shortage of lines or exchange equipment.
