§ 4. Mr. MACPHERSON
asked whether the Postmaster-General is aware that the Highland Railway Company during the coal strike withdrew the train leaving Inverness for the South at 10.50 p.m. from their train service, and that this train has not yet been restored; and whether, in view of the fact that the absence of this train delays all letters for the South posted North of Inverness after 1.30 p.m. for a whole night in Inverness, and consequently creates hardship and inconvenience to business people in the North, he will make representations to ensure that this train is restored at the earliest possible moment for the dispatch of His Majesty's mails?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
I am aware of the circumstances to which the hon. Member refers. The train is not under Post Office control; but I am informed that the company intend to reinstate it next month.
