asked the Assistant Postmaster-General what is the cause of the delay in the installation of telephones in Northern Ireland; and if he will endeavour to meet the demands of those who, through lack of them, are suffering inconvenience.

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to the right hon. Member for Saffron Walden (Mr. R, A, Butler) on the 26th November, in which I explained that delays in providing telephone service are due to serious shortage of skilled installation staff, I much regret the inconvenience and would assure the hon. Member that every endeavour is being made to avoid it so far as the resources available permit.
