asked the Postmaster-General what the income and expenditure on mails to Gairloch, Ross-shire, is, and the same as to Ullapool, Ross-shire; whether a motor mail service has been introduced on the Carve to Ullapool service and a like improvement refused to the Gairloch district; when does the present contract to carry mails from Achnasheen to Gairloch expire; whether it is possible to contract for a motor mail service to Gairloch without any additional expenditure; and whether, in view of the distance that Gairloch parish is from a railway station and of the discontent with the present arrangements, he will reconsider his decision and grant the prayer of the petition sent to him by the ratepayers of Gairloch, Ross-shire?

I am having inquiry made in the matter, and I will communicate with the hon. Member.
