HC Deb 16 November 1955 vol 546 c44W
108. Sir D. Robertson

asked the Postmaster-General what steps he has taken to supply public telephone kiosks to communities in Caithness and Sutherland, which were isolated during last winter's snow-storms, and unable to communicate their plight to the relief authorities because of the lack of telephone facilities; and if he will state their locations.

Dr. Hill

Eight rural kiosks will be installed in the counties during the present financial year, in the following places nominated by the county councils:

  • Altnabreac.
  • Badnellan (Clyne).
  • Lerin (Durness).
  • Migdale Cross Roads.
  • Papiegoe (Wick).
  • Swiney (Lybster).
  • Smerral (Latheron).
  • Skirza (Freswick).

In settling this year's programme, the experiences of last winter were borne in mind, though it will not be possible to meet all requirements in this financial year.
