HC Deb 20 July 1955 vol 544 cc47-8W
78. Mr. Spearman

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that telegraph poles are now being erected in Garfield Road, Scarborough; and if he will arrange for these lines to be laid underground so as not to interfere with the amenities.

Dr. Hill

Yes. Two poles have been erected to enable the lines from the underground cables to be distributed to subscribers' houses. To put the lines underground would more than double the cost.
