HC Deb 26 July 1939 vol 230 cc1624-5W

asked the Postmaster-General if he will give a complete Return of the villages and hamlets of Carmarthenshire which are without a public telephone service and the amount of deposit demanded in each case; and what steps he proposes to take to have these services extended?


I will write to my hon. Friend on this matter.


asked the Postmaster-General whether he will consider the possibility of extending the rural telephone service to the village of New-church, in the County of Kent, in view of the difficulty which the inhabitants experience in obtaining medical or other assistance in cases of emergency?


The question of providing telephone call office facilities at the village of Newchurch is under consideration in connection with the general proposals to establish call offices at a number of rural post offices. I hope that it will be possible to reach a decision soon.
