asked the Post-master-General if he is aware that the increase in the parcel post rates is causing hardship to crofters, old age pensioners, and other inhabitants in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, as many of them receive the greater part of their supplies by means of the parcel post; and if he will reconsider the decision to increase these rates.

While I much regret any hardship caused, I cannot agree to rescind the recent increase in Inland parcel post rates, which even now are unremunerative.
