Barnet’s Labour councillors have got agreement for the Council to contact BT demanding action to clean up unsightly vandalised phone boxes in the Borough. Labour’s lead on the Environment Committee, Cllr Alan Schneiderman, raised the issue at the last meeting (20 Jan) and asked that officers write to BT. This was unanimously agreed.

 

Labour spokesperson for Environment, Cllr Alan Schneiderman said:

 

“The state of BT phone boxes across Barnet is a disgrace with many broken, dirty and covered in graffiti. It’s not good enough for BT to earn money from advertising on phone boxes but fail to maintain them. It’s time for BT to clean up and fix their phone boxes and remove any that are no longer needed.”

 

Ends.
