asked the Postmaster-General whether it is intended to institute 850W an automatic telephone service in the Chiswick area; and, if so, when this is likely to take place?
§ Major TRYON
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. With regard to the second part, the present exchange at Chiswick has a considerable unexpired effective life and has ample capacity for additional subscribers. In these circumstances, it is not due to be converted to the automatic system for some years.
