HC Deb 11 February 2004 vol 417 c1528W
Mr. Hoyle

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister how many phone masts there are in(a) the UK, (b) Lancashire and (c) Chorley; and how many are shared between operators in each of those areas. [153718]

Keith Hill

The information requested is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

However, during September and October every year the mobile network operators write to every local authority with details of their network rollout for the year ahead. When they write to the local authority they also provide details of their existing sites within the local authority area. My hon. Friend may wish to contact the network operators for copies of their plans.
