§ DR. CLARK (Caithness)
asked the Postmaster General, If he intends to comply with the prayer of the various Memorials from Wick, Thurso, and the other towns in the North of Scotland for an acceleration of the down London day mail and the Scotch night mail, which now reaches Wick at 5 p.m., being only one hour and ten minutes before the arrival of the London night mail, although the day mail leaves London ten and a half hours before the night mail, thus wasting more than nine hours on the journey?
§ THE POSTMASTER GENERAL, (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)
Memorials have been recently received from Wick and other towns in the North of Scotland praying for an acceleration of the mail which now reaches Wick at 5 p.m., and the subject is now under inquiry. I cannot, of course, say until the reports are before me whether it will be possible to comply with the Memorials or not.
