HC Deb 03 August 1897 vol 52 c236

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he has received a Memorial signed by 127 inhabitants of the parish of Applecross, Ross-shire, pointing out that letters posted in Glasgow, say on Tuesday morning, are not delivered in the Shieldaig district of the parish until Friday afternoon; and, whether there is any prospect that the request of the memorialists for a daily delivery of letters will be granted?


The Postmaster General has received the Memorial referred to. The post from Shieldaig to Kalnakill, which now works three days a week, is maintained at a considerable loss to the revenue, and the Postmaster General does not see his way to sanction a more frequent service.
