HC Deb 21 August 1940 vol 364 c1293
36. Mr. R. Gibson

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the inadequacy of the train service between Edinburgh and Kyle of Lochalsh or Mallaig; and whether he will take steps to improve the service by ensuring that passengers from Edinburgh may travel by one of two trains arriving at these destinations on the same day as that of departure from Edinburgh?

Sir J. Reith

My inquiries are not yet complete. I will communicate as soon as possible with my hon. and learned Friend.

Mr. Gibson

Can the right hon. Gentleman say how long it will take him to find out the particulars of this train service in Scotland?

Mr. Mathers

Is not the only point in the Question not so much the getting to Mallaig and Kyle of Lochalsh as being able to get there, and away to the islands as quickly as possible?

Sir J. Reith

I will communicate with both hon. Members as soon as possible.
