asked the Assistant Postmaster-General the quotas of telephone kiosks which are to be provided in the rural areas in each county in Wales for the 12 months beginning 1st April, 1954.

As the cost of providing rural call offices varies considerably, we have decided for the future to allocate a quota of expenditure for each county. The number of call offices provided will, therefore, depend upon the sites selected and the amount of work involved. The quotas for the Welsh counties and a rough estimate of the number of kiosks they will provide are as follows:
