§ Sir D. Robertson
asked the Postmaster-General how many public telephone kiosks have been provided for and will be erected and operating in the current financial year for each Scottish county; and the number for each Scottish county that will be provided in the next financial year.
§ Mr. Ness Edwards
The number of kiosks expected to be provided in each Scottish county in the present financial year is as follows:326W
Country No. of kiosks Country No. of kiosks Aberdeen 21 Midlothian 23 Angus 45 Moray 5 Argyll 23 Nairn 3 Ayr 25 Orkney 3 Banff 7 Peebles 3 Berwick 5 Perth 27 Bute 4 Renfrew 24 Caithness 4 Ross and Cromarty 19 Clackmannan. 7 Dumfries 11 Roxburgh 6 Dumbarton 7 Selkirk 3 East Lothian 4 Stirling 8 Fife 42 Sutherland 11 Inverness 41 West Lothian 5 Kincardine 7 Wigtown 3 Kinross 1 Zetland 11 Kirkcudbright 2 County of the City of Glasgow 15 Lanark 43
A reliable estimate of the number to be provided in the financial year in each country cannot be made at this stage; it is hoped that the total will be about the same.
