Asked Of: 
The Mayor


Lone travellers are often reluctant to use public phones located in intimidating station concourses, which are in many cases poorly lit and contain hawkers and minicab drivers. Would the Mayor therefore follow up his previous commitment to enable Londoner's to have safe trips home by ensuring that coin-operated pay phones are also located on train platforms? .

I remain committed to improving the personal security of Londoner's. Good means of communication are an important part of this. The best solution in terms of locating telephones is likely to vary from case to case as some platforms can be equally intimidating. . .
