§ Mr. Maurice Macmillan
asked the Postmaster-General how many people in the Fernhurst and the Haslemere exchange areas, respectively, having shared a line, are waiting for an individual line; how many, having no telephone facilities, are waiting for an individual line; and what proportion of the latter have shared facilities.
§ Mr. Mason
Two subscribers at Fernhurst, and 22 at Haslemere, who at present have shared service are waiting for 37W exclusive lines. We have no record of any specific requests for exclusive service by people who are waiting for service. We cannot at present estimate how many of the 54 people at Haslemere and the 56 at Ferhurst who are waiting will be required to share when service is given.
