HC Deb 10 October 1912 vol 42 c528

asked the Post master-General if he is aware that in the time-table for trains to be run by the Highland Railway Company from 31st October, 1912, onwards it is stated that the midnight mail train from Inverness to the South will no longer run; whether he is aware that if this occurs all letters posted north of Inverness later than 1 p.m. will have to remain in Inverness till the following day, and that this delay of His Majesty's mails will cause inconvenience to the commercial community in the North of Scotland; and whether he will take immediate steps with the view of removing this grievance?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)

I am aware of the circumstances, and I hope to be able to make suitable arrangements for the transmission of the mails.
