§ 2. Mr. M. MacMillan
asked the Postmaster-General what progress has been made in providing air mail services for the Western Isles during the past year; and what extension of these services and what new services are contemplated for the near future.
§ Mr. Wilfred Paling
An air mail service between Glasgow and Benbecula, serving both Benbecula and South Uist, came into operation on the 10th February, 1947; its benefits will shortly be extended to the island of North Uist. An air mail service between Inverness and Stornoway is due to commence this week. The provision of a service to Islay has been approved and should start in the near future. Schemes for providing air mail services for Tiree and Barra are being examined.
