HC Deb 07 March 1924 vol 170 c1787W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is now making inquiries into the mail arrangements between the Western Isles and the mainland of Scotland, with a view to expediting and improving the present service to Harris, Uist, and Barra, as well as the internal rural services; and if he will give his attention to the arrangements in these last-named islands?


The sea service between the mainland and Harris, Uist and Barra has recently been reviewed, and I am assured that the best arrangements practicable have been made, having due regard to cost. I shall, however, be happy to give consideration to any suggestions which the hon. Member may put forward, whether in regard to the sea services or to the rural services on the islands.
