That this House is greatly concerned about the new rules announced by Ofcom that could allow British Telecom to axe 6,000 telephone boxes without public consultation; calls on Ofcom to rescind the regulation that allows BT to remove phone boxes without consultation if there is another telephone box within 400 metres; notes that telephone boxes provide a vital service, especially in rural areas and during emergencies, and where there are often mobile phone coverage black spots; and recognises that not everyone has a mobile phone.
