HC Deb 22 December 1964 vol 704 c220W
Sir D. Glover

asked the Postmaster-General why, on the Abbey and Whitehall Exchanges, the telephones are faulty, giving either wrong numbers or unobtainable rings on a large number of occasions.

Mr. Joseph Mater

I am sorry about these difficulties which are due mainly to failures of exchange equipment. Both these exchanges, and many others in London are being overhauled, and I hope that these measures will lead to an improvement in the service.
