Mr Daly asked the Postmaster-General, upon notice:

(1)   How many telephone applications are outstanding in Marrickville, Newtown, Annandale, Petersham, Dulwich Hill, Tempe, St Peters, Erskineville, Leichhardt and Stanmore.

(2)   What is the (a) longest (b) shortest and (c) average period of wailing for this service.


Sir Alan Hulme - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   These areas are served either partly or wholly from the Petersham, Newtown, Under.cliffe and Glebe exchanges. At the end of August, there were no applications deferred because of non availability of plant in these areas. However, there is always a number of applications awaiting provision at any one time which are either being investigated for the allocation of plant, awaiting the customer's acceptance of a quotation or actually in the process of being installed. Generally, this figure, in the areas concerned, is about 300.

(2)   The period between the date of payment of advance fees and the connection date in these areas is:

(a)   Longest - Three weeks

(b)   Shortest - One week

(c)   Average - Two weeks.
