§ 74. Mr. Whitelaw
asked the Postmaster-General what action he is taking to speed-up the provision of telephone kiosks in those isolated rural areas where they are urgently needed.
Kiosks are being provided in all villages which have a post office. In other rural areas kiosks are provided under a special scheme, the details of which are agreed annually with the county branches of the Rural District Councils' Association in England and Wales and with the county councils in Scotland and Northern Ireland. For the current financial year, £136,000 has been allocated to this scheme.
