HC Deb 17 April 1885 vol 297 c25

asked the Surveyor General of the Ordnance, Whether it is a fact that the usual practice has this year been departed from of inviting tenders for the purchase of military condemned clothing, and an offer from a buyer accepted without competition; and, if so, for what reason has the usual course been departed from?


The results obtained in advertising these sales led me to the conclusion that it would be better to adopt the principle of limiting competition in this particular business.
