§ Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE
asked the Postmaster-General if, in view of the difficulty 722W of getting adequate telephone facilities in Northern Lincolnshire, he will hasten in the provision of call boxes at stations and other places; and when the concession of two miles radius for rural telephone areas will commence?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
I am pressing forward with the provision of telephone call offices in rural districts on the lines indicated by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer in his Budget speech. The concession referred to will have effect as from the beginning of the new quarter on 1st July.
