§ 78. Mr. COUPER
asked the Postmaster-General if public telephone kiosks have been erected in all principal towns; and whether any of the local authorities charge his Department local rates for the same?
§ Mr. McNEILL
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative.
2270 As regards the second part, the telephone kiosks erected in the public streets are not included in the list of Crown properties in respect of which ex-gratia contributions in lieu of rates are made to local authorities.
§ Mr. COUPER
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether it is not the case that at least one of the principal cities in the United Kingdom charges that rate, namely, the City of Aberdeen?
