HC Deb 26 March 1912 vol 36 c208
Captain MURRAY

asked the Postmaster-General whether, with a view to minimising the nuisance arising from the inconsiderate use of whistles at all hours of the night for the purpose of calling cabs, he will consider the advisability of facilitating the extension of cab-rank telephone installations?


The Post Office has already arranged for the installation of telephones for summoning cabs in 307 cab offices and shelters in the Metropolitan district, and I am always willing to consider the practicability of extending the arrangement to other points.
