HC Deb 23 July 1963 vol 681 c144W
2. Mr. Gardner

asked the Postmaster-General if he will give the date upon which the Brentwood Telephone Exchange will be converted to an automatic system.

Mr. Bevins

Negotiations are going ahead for the purchase of a site for a new telephone exchange, and if these are successful the scheme will be included in the building programme now being prepared so that Brentwood can be converted to automatic working and given S.T.D. in 1969.
