§ Sir D. Glover
asked the Postmaster-General why, on the Abbey and Whitehall Exchanges, the telephones are faulty, giving either wrong numbers or unobtainable rings on a large number of occasions.
Mr. Joseph Mater
I am sorry about these difficulties which are due mainly to failures of exchange equipment. Both these exchanges, and many others in London are being overhauled, and I hope that these measures will lead to an improvement in the service.
