HC Deb 15 July 1959 vol 609 cc23-4W
20. Mr. Osborne

asked the Postmaster-General if he will put a telephone kiosk in the Eastfield Road area of Louth, Lincolnshire, where a large number of elderly people live who find it inconvenient to walk 10 minutes to the nearest kiosk in Lacy Gardens; and if he will make a statement on the general telephone position in the Louth district.

Mr. Marples

There are two kiosks in the Eastfield Road area and one of these is near the old peoples' bungalows in St. Bernard's Avenue. I would not feel justified in providing another at the present time. There are 12 applications outstanding in Louth, and 13 others in the course of being met. Seventy-one telephones were fitted in the past 12 months.
