HC Deb 13 July 1961 vol 644 c68W
72. Sir M. Stoddart-Scott

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will introduce legislation to compel local police forces to secure the permission of the owners before erecting police telephone boxes on private property.

Mr. R. A. Butler

A police authority has no power to erect a telephone box on private property without the owner's permission.
