asked the Assistant Postmaster-General how many applicants for telephones have had these installed in Leyton during the past 12 months; and how many are still awaiting installation.

Five hundred and eighty-nine telephones were connected in the last 12 months, and 1,369 are outstanding.

Could the Assistant Postmaster-General say how long applicants now have to wait before they are likely to get an installation?

There is no definite time, but I am sure the hon. Member will be pleased to know that since he last put down a Question to me in May we have effected a reduction of the waiting list in his constituency of no fewer than 294.
