Plaid Cymru launch online petition to save phone boxes

Penri James, Plaid Cymru Ceredigion's Westminster candidate, has voiced his concerns at plans by BT to remove 69 phone boxes from Ceredigion. While BT is no longer required to consult on the removal of a public payphone where there is another within 400 metres, it must hold a full consultation on its plans to remove phone boxes which do not fall into this category.

BT is now holding a consultation on its plans to close a total of 69 payphones in Ceredigion. The consultation period, which will last until 06 September 2008, has received little publicity from BT since it was launched on 08 June 2008.

In response to these proposed closures in Ceredigion and throughout the whole of Wales, Plaid Cymru has now launched a special campaign website at which includes an online petition that allows people to register their disappointment with BT and OFCOM for allowing these closures.

Commenting on BT's consultation, Plaid Cymru's Penri James said:

"While I accept that our payphones are no longer used as often as they once were now that many people have mobile phones, I am very concerned at BT's proposals to remove 69 phone boxes from Ceredigion. In reality, there remain many areas locally where you simply cannot get a mobile reception.

"This is just another example of how the Westminster government is allowing rural services to be eroded. Plaid Cymru's new website will allow people to register their disappointment with both BT and OFCOM for allowing so many phone boxes to be closed".

The 69 phone boxes which BT wants to remove in Ceredigion are:-

No details of the phone boxes which will be removed by BT without consultation because they are located within 400 metres of an alternative payphone are available;

There is a story on the BBC as well here.
