HC Deb 28 May 1965 vol 713 c137W
Lord Balniel

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware of the shortage of public telephone kiosks in the Colgrave area of Welwyn Garden City; and what proposals he has for increasing the number.

Mr. Joseph Slater

My right hon. Friend is not aware of any shortage of telephone kiosks in the Colgrove area of Welwyn Garden City. There are already four kiosks within half a mile, two of them about a quarter of a mile from Colgrove. Most of the people in the area have their own telephones, and provision of further public facilities would not be justified.
