§ 77. Mr. AINSWORTH
asked whether the Postmaster-General's attention has been called to the fact that the service of the mails to the island of Tiree has recently been irregular and insufficient; whether he is aware that this is due to the substitution for the usual mail boat by Messrs. MacBrayne, the contractors, of a vessel incapable of carrying out the service satisfactorily, especially during the winter season; and what steps he proposes to take to improve the service?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
My inquiries in this matter are not yet completed, but I will communicate with the hon. Member as soon as possible.
