§ MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)
I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether, in the new contract for the conveyance of Her Majesty's mails between Strome Ferry and Stornoway, arrangements will he made for a steamer of sufficient power and speed to ensure the regular delivery of mails, and which shall afford suitable accommodation for second-class and steerage passengers?
§ MR. A. MORLEY
Provision will certainly be made in the new contract for the use of a steamer of sufficient power 1037 and speed to ensure the regular delivery of the mails. I should hope that suitable accommodation for passengers would also be afforded; but this is a matter not within the scope of the contract.
