§ Lieutenant W. Shepherd
asked the Assistant Postmaster-General the number of public telephone call offices which were out of action in London on Ist December.
§ Mr. Burke
The exact figure could only be obtained by a somewhat extensive inquiry; but, as stated in my reply to the hon. and gallant Member for Henley (Sir G. Fox) on the 15th November last, it is estimated that about 8 per cent, of: the 11,000 public telephone call offices in the London Telecommunications Region are out of order at any particular time.
