HC Deb 23 March 1955 vol 538 c2045
17. Mr. Pryde

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General when he anticipates that it will be possible to install telephone kiosks in the new town of Easthouses, Midlothian.

Sir. E. Boyle

There is a kiosk on the main road which borders the estate and my hon. Friend is looking into the question of providing others.

Mr. Pryde

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that this is a very large new town created to receive redundant miners from other parts of Scotland, that amenities are very few, and that there is a widespread feeling that there is a shortage of equipment for an exchange in Midlothian?

Sir. E. Boyle

My hon. Friend is aware of this. Inquiry is now being made locally into the possibility of providing two further kiosks.
