§ 117. Mr. Ron Lewis
asked the Postmaster General whether he has yet reached a decision on the proposal to change the colour of telephone kiosks and telecommunications vehicles to yellow.
§ Mr. Stonehouse
For reasons of road safety, I have decided to change the colour of telecommunications vehicles from the present dark green to golden yellow. Existing vehicles will be painted yellow only when they fall due for repainting in the normal course. I am today sending each Member of this House a copy of a Post Office publication which contains a feature article with full-colour photographs clearly illustrating the superior visibility of the yellow vehicles.
I have no intention of changing the colour of telephone kiosks.
