HC Deb 06 August 1889 vol 339 c536
MR. CALDWELL (Glasgow, St. Rollox)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether in would be possible to arrange that the mails from Stornoway to the South should overtake the morning mail from Dingwall, instead of being delayed till the afternoon as at present?

* THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES, University of Cambridge)

I quite agree with the hon. Member as to the obvious desirability of arranging a correspondence between the Southward Mail from Stornoway and the Morning Mail from Dingwall. But I understand that insuperable difficulties have hitherto interfered with an earlier despatch from Stornoway, and that the expense attendant upon a special service from Dingwall to overtake the Southern Mail at Inverness appears to be prohibitory. I will, however, gladly receive any further suggestions which may serve to facilitate a more convenient arrangement of the Mails.
