§ Sir JOHN DEWAR
asked the Secretary for Scotland if he has received a memorial from the inhabitants of the Western Hebrides, in Inverness-shire, drawing attention to the unsatisfactory condition of the steamer service; and if he is able to say whether anything can be done to improve the present condition of affairs?547W
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
I have received a number of representations of the character referred to by my hon. Friend. I am in communication with the Postmaster-General, but am not yet in a position to make any statement on the subject.
