asked the Postmaster-General how many people are awaiting connection of telephones in Brighton; and when these connections will be made.
§ Mr. Benn
In the four exchange areas serving the County Borough of Brighton, all applications for telephones are being met. On 30th June, the total number in course of completion was 369. Leaving aside orders held up waiting the customers' convenience, the majority of applicants are given service within two to three weeks.
