Will the Minister get in touch with the Postmaster-General to find out what is wrong with the postal service? Is he aware that I posted the letter to him and it is very important that he should understand these figures which affect large areas of Aberdeenshire, the City of Aberdeen and trade, industry, commerce and employment in that area? Will he get in touch with his fellow Ministers with a view to rectifying this shocking failure on the part of his Ministry?
I object to the hon. and learned Gentleman saying that. There has been no shocking failure on the part of my right hon. Friend or myself. Nor can I see how what happens to the railway between Elgin and Lossiemouth can have any effect at all on the City of Aberdeen.
