In 1960. The existing exchange equipment will be enlarged in the meantime.

Will my right hon. Friend say why Congleton has been left so far behind in the Post Office programme, and will he try to improve on that date?

There are many arrears to be made up in Congleton as elsewhere, and I am afraid that Congleton cannot be dealt with in the matter of a new automatic exchange until 1960.

Air Commodore Harvey:

That is very bad.
