HC Deb 05 May 1924 vol 173 cc27-8
50. Mr. RHYS

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department when the roads and approaches at the British Empire Exhibition will be in a fit state for pedestrian traffic; when the amusements section will be open; and whether he is aware that a large number of telephone boxes are not yet connected with any exchanges?


I have been asked to reply. I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which was given by my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary to a similar question asked by the hon. Member for Lincoln on 1st May. With regard to telephone boxes, I am informed that out of the 61 provided, 51 are complete and 10 are in course of completion.

Viscount CURZON

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the question referred to was not asked, because the hon. Member mentioned was not in his place to ask it? Cannot we now have some information as to what is being done? I have been to Wembley, and I can tell him that the situation is getting worse.
