§ Sir A. SINCLAIR
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the present arrangements for carrying the mails to Lochinver is a source of dissatisfaction to the people of that district; that the new mail-car contractors are prepared to take the mails from Invershin or, if there is any difficulty about sorting at that station, from Bonar Bridge station without extra cost to the Government; and whether he is prepared to adopt these proposals forthwith?
§ Mr. NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN
The proposal to base the road mail service to Lochinver upon Invershin or upon Bonar Bridge Station instead of upon Lairg has been repeatedly examined; but there are serious practical objections to the change. The suggested alteration would not admit of any appreciable improvement in the mail service.
