HC Deb 08 February 1933 vol 274 c182
18. Mr. THORNE (for Mr. McENTEE)

asked the Postmaster-General the amount of money stolen from telephone kiosks during the last 12 months; the number of boxes tampered with; and the number of convictions during this period or to the latest available date?

Mr. WOMERSLEY (Lord of the Treasury)

During 1932 about £4,000 was stolen from some 2,000 telephone kiosks. 37 persons were convicted. I am glad to say that, following the preventive measures taken, recent losses have been reduced to very small dimensions.
