asked the Postmaster-General whether he is now in a position to accede to the request made to him to provide a public telephone box at West Linton, Peeblesshire; and, if so, when this facility will be available for the use of the public?
A canvas is being made for subscribers to a new Exchange at West Linton. If, as is expected, the requisite support be obtained, a public call office will be provided at the same time as the Exchange.
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether the revenue to be derived from this new installation will justify the expenditure?
The expenditure is quite as much justified as in any other items of expenditure of the Post Office in regard to telephones which are not remunerative.
