HC Deb 19 October 1908 vol 194 c760
MR. ESSLEMONT (Aberdeen, S.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to the dislocation of postal business which has been created by the recent action of the Caledonian and North British Railway Companies in changing the hours of departure of the evening mail trains from Aberdeen to the South; and what course he proposes to take in the matter.


My attention has been drawn to this matter. The hours of these trains are not in any way under my control, but I have pointed out to the railway companies the great inconvenience to the public in the North of Scotland which has been caused by the alteration of the trains and the consequent alteration in the postal service; and I have asked them to consider whether they cannot revert to the former times of service.
