HC Deb 17 November 1966 vol 736 c186W
Sir Knox Cunningham

asked the Postmaster-General how long the public telephone MM30087X, situated at the junction of Court Road and Bedford Road, Orpington, has been out of order; and when this service will be restored.

Mr. Edward Short

Nine months. There has been a great deal of wanton damage to public telephones in the area, but this particular telephone has been available for emergency service during this period.

There have been further difficulties in obtaining a sufficient supply of spare parts which have contributed to the delay. However, it has now been restored to full working order.
