107. Colonel Clarke
asked the Assistant Postmaster-General how far his regulations require that, before telegraph and telephone poles which have become redundant through the lines being placed underground, are handed over to the British Electricity Authority, such transfer of user is referred to the highway authorities for their agreement.
§ Mr. Gammans
No general instructions have so far been considered necessary. The highway authority should, of course, be consulted on any proposed transfer of user, and if my hon. and gallant Friend has in mind any particular instance where this was not done I shall be glad to make inquiry.
