§ 20. Mr. Osborne
asked the Postmaster-General if he will put a telephone kiosk in the Eastfield Road area of Louth, 24W 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.
