asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the shortage of pennies, he will have the coin boxes in telephone kiosks adapted to take halfpennies?

There are more than 50,000 public call offices, and the coin boxes would need radical alterations to the mechanism before they could take halfpennies. I do not consider that this work would be justified at the present time.
