§ Mr. HOPKIN
asked the Postmaster-General if he will give a complete Return of the villages and hamlets of Carmarthenshire which are without a public 1625W telephone service and the amount of deposit demanded in each case; and what steps he proposes to take to have these services extended?
asked the Postmaster-General whether he will consider the possibility of extending the rural telephone service to the village of New-church, in the County of Kent, in view of the difficulty which the inhabitants experience in obtaining medical or other assistance in cases of emergency?
§ Mr. LEES-SMITH
The question of providing telephone call office facilities at the village of Newchurch is under consideration in connection with the general proposals to establish call offices at a number of rural post offices. I hope that it will be possible to reach a decision soon.
