HC Deb 17 July 1940 vol 363 c195
17. Mr. Lyons

asked the Postmaster-General whether, as a further measure of precaution, he will order the erasure of location signs and lists of place-charges in telephone kiosks; and whether he will arrange for the deletion of all local and area maps in telephone directories which are available for public reference at the present time?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I have already arranged for the exchange name and charge lists to be removed from every telephone kiosk in rural areas or on the outskirts of towns; and for the maps to he removed from telephone directories in every telephone kiosk throughout the country.

Mr. Lyons

Will my right hon. Friend take the same step with regard to local and area maps in public offices when the public have access to and can consult those maps, the presence of which would stultify the other arrangements that have been made?

Mr. Morrison

I will consider my hon. and learned Friend's suggestion.
