17. Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what was the cost of repairing telephone kiosks damaged by vandalism during the latest year for which information is available; and what percentage this sum represented of the total cost of the telephone service during that year.

Mr. Meacher

For the year 1972–73 the cost was £473,000. This was about 0.5 per cent. of the total cost of maintaining the inland telephone service for the same period.
