HC Deb 13 May 1925 vol 183 cc1868-9W

asked the Postmaster General whether he is aware that no public telephone facilities are available at Bardney, Lincolnshire; and whether, in view of the size of the village and of its importance as an agricultural centre, he will endeavour to provide each facilities at an early date?


The question of establishing a public telephone call office at Bardney, Lincolnshire, was considered in 1923, when it was found that a guarantee would be necessary. Full particulars were furnished to the parish council, but they decided not to proceed with the question. Sufficient support has not been secured to justify the establishment of a telephone exchange at Bardney, but inquiries will be pursued on these lines, and if the necessary support is forthcoming, a telephone exchange will he opened and a telephone call office will be provided without guarantee
