asked the Postmaster-General what has been the increase in demand for new telephones in the Peterhead and Fraserburgh districts since the introduction of the new dialling system: and to what extent the demand has already been met.
Since automatic working was introduced at Peterhead exchange in November last the level of demand for new connections has been over half as much again as in the previous 12 months. Automatic working is due to be introduced at Fraserburgh exchange in August 1967. The level of demand there has increased by about 9 per cent. in the last six months.Neither exchange has a waiting list.
