HC Deb 05 March 1952 vol 497 c56W
68. Mr. J. Taylor

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General if he will consider the alteration of payboxes on public telephones to provide a fourth slot to take threepenny pieces.

Mr. Gammans

There is no doubt that a slot to take 3d. pieces would be a convenience. I do not think, however, that with the present shortage of manpower and equipment and the need for economy the Post Office would be justified in altering 58,000 public call boxes.
