Make cli (calling line indicator - this displays the number calling you) a free service from all telecom providers as part of the line rental fee

For telecom providers to provide calling line indicator (cli), which is the service that displays the calling number in your phone before you answer, costs nothing to them but in most cases they have it as a chargeable service from £5/month upwards. This is outside of a lot of people's budgets therefore they do without hence they do not know who is calling. If it was provided free to everyone then the huge number of cold callers and scammers that call would be much less as most people would be discouraged from answering if the number was not recognised.
I would like the government to lobby the telecom providers to supply this service to everyone free of charge.
