HC Deb 13 May 1901 vol 93 cc1463-4
MR. JOHN DEWAR (Inverness-shire)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, in view of the fact that the inhabitants of Glen Cannish, Glen Affaric, and Glen Strathfarrar, near Beauly, Inverness-shire, comprising a population of between one and two hundred, have a delivery of letters only once a fortnight, will he say whether he is yet in a position to provide a more frequent service.


The Postmaster General has had pleasure in sanctioning a delivery of letters to Glen Cannish and Glen Affaric once a week instead of once a fortnight as hitherto. As regards Glen Strathfarrar there is already a delivery of letters once a week throughout the district all the year round, and an additional delivery per week as far as Monar during July, August, and September. Having regard to the amount of the correspondence and the cost of the existing service, the Postmaster General regrets that he would not be justified in sanctioning a more frequent delivery.
