Alert me about debates like this
asked the Postmaster-General if he will take steps to have a telephone kiosk erected in the new council housing estate at Long Law-ford.
I would like to do this but cannot promise to provide a new kiosk quickly, because we have to lay new cables as well. The existing kiosk at Long Lawford is within half a mile of the estate.
Is not the right hon. Gentleman aware that Messrs. Wimpey who built on the site, and who are now shortly leaving this local housing estate, had a telephone installed at their office? Could he use that cable for a new kiosk on the estate?
I am told that that will not be free until the end of 1958, and we will consider it then.
