§ 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.
