HC Deb 24 November 1965 vol 721 cc68-9W
90. Mr. Michael Alison

asked the Postmaster-General why there is a shortage of telephone cables and exchange equipment in the Wetherby area; and when new subscribers in this area may expect to have telephones installed.

Mr. Joseph Slater

The exchange at Wetherby is exhausted due to the rapid development of the area. The shortage of cables has been remedied and an equipment extension is in hand. I hope this will be completed by the end of the year and that we shall then be able to begin to clear the waiting list.
