§ Mr. Allason
asked the Postmaster General what is the average estimated waiting time before a telephone can be provided for a subscriber on the Berkhamsted exchange; and what was the corresponding time in October 1964.
§ Mr. Joseph Slater
Nearly all applications for telephones are being met within a week. Four people are on the waiting list and additional cables are required before they can be given service. Two will have their telephones by August. The218W speed at which cables can be provided to give service to the remaining two will depend on builder's progress with the development of a new estate.
Records of the waiting period in October, 1964 are no longer available. Since then 1,948 customers have been connected.
