HC Deb 14 March 1905 vol 142 cc1377-8
MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that letters reaching Stornoway, Island of Lewis, on Tuesday forenoon are not delivered in the Bernera district of the island until Saturday afternoon; and, as this delay causes inconvenience to a number of inhabitants, will arrangements be made to provide Bernera with a mail three times a week instead of only twice a week, as at present.

THE POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Lord STANLEY, Lancashire, West-houghton)

I find that since the question of the postal service at Bernera was last considered, a new public ferry has been established between Callanish and Miawaig and that it is now practicable to afford a service three times a week at Bernera. I have had pleasure, therefore, in giving instructions for carrying out that improvement.
