HC Deb 01 June 1960 vol 624 cc139-40W
75. Mr. Mason

asked the Postmaster-General if he will make a statement on the progress being made with the intro- duction of a new public telephone kiosk; and whether he is yet able to say which design will be accepted.

Mr. Bevins

The choice of a new design by Mr. Neville Conder was announced in the House on 17th December, 1958. I have recently approved a prototype and an order has been placed for six of these kiosks for practical trials by the public. Some points have still to be settled before manufacture can proceed, but I hope these will be resolved quickly.
