HC Deb 18 December 1963 vol 686 cc205-6W
15. Mr. Shepherd

asked the Postmaster-General why alterations and additions to existing telephone services in the London centre telephone area are taking as long as eight weeks; and what steps he is taking to give the telephone user better service in this regard.

Mr. Bevins

I am sorry that there should be delays, but I assure my hon. Friend that very few take as long as eight weeks. Nevertheless, I am not satisfied with the present position, and I am having it re-examined as part of the plans announced in my recent Paper on the Inland Telephone Service.
