§ 15. Mr. Shepherd
asked the Postmaster-General why alterations and additions to existing telephone services in the London centre telephone area are 206W 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.
