HC Deb 27 July 1965 vol 717 cc98-9W
Mr. Coleman

asked the Postmaster-General what is the extent of subscriber trunk dialling services in South Wales; if he will expedite plans to extend the service, in particular to Neath; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Joseph Slater

Sixty-three per cent. of subscribers in South Wales have subscriber trunk dialling facilities, including subscribers on Neath exchange. Neath will be available by dialling from London later this year.

Mr. Atkins

asked the Postmaster-General to what extent he is satisfied with the arrangements for ensuring that inquirers are able to obtain details of subscriber trunk dialling codes as soon as these come into operation; and what steps he is taking to improve them.

Mr. Benn

Callers are advised by the exchange operators of a new Subscriber Trunk Dialling code as soon as it becomes available for use, and it is subsequently shown in the next issue of the dialling code booklets. So far as I know these arrangements work satisfactorily, but if the hon. Member has any particular difficulty in mind I shall be glad to look into it.
