asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that a number of telephone instruments would be made available by an increased issue of plug-in points; and whether these will now be more extensively provided.

I should perhaps add that delay in providing telephone service generally arises from shortage of exchange equipment or of wire in underground cables, rather than from shortage of telephone instruments.
