HC Deb 27 March 1882 vol 268 c24

asked the Postmaster General, Whether, since the rule requiring the made up clothing to be sent over here from Ireland for inspection and approval is no longer insisted on, the Contract recently entered into has been given to an Irish firm; and, if not, whether the rejection of all tenders from Irish firms is caused by the question raised as to the hardship of requiring the clothing to be sent to London for inspection?


in reply, said, he thought it right to state that, finding these matters were all managed at the War Office, he wrote to the hon. Member requesting him to put the Question to the Secretary of State for War. No doubt, the right hon. Gentleman would be able to answer it.
