HC Deb 09 March 1966 vol 725 cc550-1W
103. Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will take the opportunity of the General Election period to overhaul thoroughly the lines under the number Whitehall 6240, the ancillary equipment thereto, and the equipment in the Whitehall exchange itself, so as to avoid crossed lines, no pick-ups, and connections with wrong exchanges.

Mr. Benn

The lines under the number WHItehall 6240 are terminated on the Palace of Westminster switchboard. These lines, with their ancillary equipment both at the switchboard and at the Whitehall Exchange, are already being overhauled and the work will be completed during the Election period.
