HC Deb 07 July 1965 vol 715 cc245-6W
90. Mr. Randall

asked the Postmaster-General to what extent faults in and deterioration of the public telephone service at railway termini and large stations are due to excessive use; and if he will undertake an inquiry to ascertain whether adequate telephones are available for the demands at railway stations, and into the need to provide effective inspection and attention.

Mr. Joseph Slater

Railway kiosks which are in constant use, suffer heavy wear and tear and occasionally rough handling and even some vandalism.

My right hon. Friend plans to improve the inspection routine to reduce the number

ratified by the United Kingdom, and the dates of such ratifications.

Mr. Roy Jenkins
