§ 65. Mr. MacKENZIE LIVINGSTONE
asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the special hardships suffered by the fishing communities in the Western Isles through the reduction of the mail and steamer services, he will see that there is no avoidable delay in restoring the regular facilities and, where possible, improving them?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL - THOMSON
I regret the inconvenience caused to the inhabitants. I am keeping a close watch on the situation in order to ensure that the services are resumed as soon as circumstances permit.
§ Mr. MACQUISTEN
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the main cause of dissatisfaction is the want of coal for the steamer company, and is he also aware that in County of Argyll ample coal is being produced to supply the Highlands, and will be intervene with the Coal Controller and see that the Highland steamships get all the coal they want from Argyll?
