§ Mr. HUNT
asked the Postmaster-General whether he has received a petition from the inhabitants of Benbecula for an improved mail service; and whether he can see his way to have the mails delivered and taken up in Petersport Harbour three days a week by a rowing-boat, so that the mail steamers need not anchor?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
I have received the petition, but practical difficulties, which have already been explained to the hon. Member, prevent me from acceding to the requests made in the petition.
