HC Deb 07 March 1882 vol 267 c383

asked the Postmaster General, Whether his attention has been given to Clause 6 of the "Conditions of Contract" for the clothing of the Irish Postal Service, from which it appears that contractors residing in Ireland are bound to deliver the made-up clothing for inspection and approval at the Royal Army Clothing Depôt, Grosvenor Road, Pimlico, the cloth from which the articles are made having been previously approved at the same place; and, whether it would be deemed sufficient to send samples of the made-up clothing for inspection and approval, the clothing to be strictly according to such samples, and subject to the approval of the authorities at the General Post Office, Dublin?


The regulation to which the hon. Member refers applies not only to Irish, but to all contractors in the United Kingdom. After making inquiry, I am glad to be able to state that the suggestion contained in the Question of the hon. Member can be adopted.
