HC Deb 02 August 1897 vol 52 c100
MR. E. B. BAILLIE (Inverness)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, when the Committee appointed to inquire into the mail service in the Western Highlands and Islands of Scotland are likely to report?


The Committee to consider the future arrangements for certain steamer services on the West and North Coasts of Scotland, which is no doubt the Committee to which the hon. Member refers, has only recently been appointed, and it cannot at present be stated over how long a time the necessary inquiries will extend or when the report will be made.
