§ Sir M. Redmayne
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware of the delay in the installation of new telephones in the East Leake area of Nottinghamshire; and what plans he has for an improved service.
§ Mr. Joseph Slater
I am sorry that 26 applications for telephones in the East Leake area are at present delayed because of shortage of exchange equipment. The provision of additional equipment is in hand and the outstanding applications should be met by the autumn of this year.
