§ Mr. Kimball
asked the Postmaster-General what amount of takings in any one year justifies the expense of providing electric light in rural telephone kiosks.
§ Mr. Bevins
No fixed minimum is laid down, if only because the cost of provision, as well as the amount of the receipts, is taken into account in deciding whether electric lighting should be provided. Normally, however, lighting is not provided in a rural area kiosk if the cost exceeds £35.
