§ Major GLYN
asked the Postmaster-General what are the total number of railway stations at which telephones are installed for public use; and whether the present figure indicates, in rural districts especially, the anticipated development of telephone facilities as foretold by him in reply to a question on 7th April, 1930?
§ Mr. VIANT
Statistics regarding public telephones at railway stations in urban districts are not available. So far as rural stations are concerned, 1,924 have telephones. Of these, 1,124 are public call offices; the other 800 are rented by the railway companies, who as a rule provide facilities for the public to use the telephone. I consider these figures to be satisfactory.
