HC Deb 27 March 1888 vol 324 cc382-3
MR. LYELL (Orkney and Shetland)

asked the Postmaster General, Whether he can state what improvements he pro- poses to make in the Shetland Mail Service, in respect of more frequent and direct communication between Lerwick and Aberdeen, as was requested in a Memorial recently addressed to him by inhabitants of Shetland?

THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)

I am giving careful consideration to the Memorials for an improvement of the Postal Service between Aberdeen and Lerwick, and I am in communication with the Treasury upon the subject. I am not in a position to say more at the present time.
