asked the Postmaster-General how many subscribers are awaiting the installation of telephones in each of the four urban districts of Billericay, Rayleigh, Benfleet and Canvey Island; how many of these in each district have been waiting for over 12 months; and on what grounds priority is given.
The particulars desired are as follows:
|Urban District||Total applications outstanding at 30.9.1950||Applications (included in the previous col.) made prior to 1.10.1949|
asked the Postmaster-General how many applicants at the latest available date were waiting for telephones in Leeds; what was the date of the oldest outstanding application; and how many telephones it is hoped to install in Leeds in 1951.
Five thousand eight hundred and sixty-five applications were outstanding on 30th September, 1950, the date of the earliest being 7th December, 1940. It is hoped to provide service for about 3,600 in 1951.
