HC Deb 21 November 1968 vol 773 c309W
38. Mr. Newens

asked the Postmaster-General how many applications for the installation of telephones at North Weald, Epping, are at present outstanding; and what steps he is taking to accelerate the provision of the necessary lines to satisfy this demand.

Mr. Joseph Slater

126 at 31st October, 1968. We ordered a new exchange in December, 1965 and have been pressing the manufacturers to complete it. We now expect the exchange to be ready in the spring of 1969. All the people who are waiting will then be given service.
