If someone wanted to make a public telephone call 30, 40 or 50 years ago, one of the ways in which they got information about where to make it from was visual—a red telephone box was a visual source of information. I suggest that the Minister should interpret broadly the phrase

“in what form the information is to be made available” in clause 11(3)(a), including within it the design of Hayes hook-ups so that, like red telephone boxes, they give a visual clue—visual information—and people can see from their design where the available charging point is.
