§ MR. HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)
asked the Secretary of State for War, If he has any objection to lay upon the Table copies of the advertisement calling for tenders for 20,000 swords in the autumn of 1885, of the tenders received, and of the contract with the German firm with whom the order was placed, as also copies of the advertisement calling for tenders for 150,000 sword bayonets this year, of the 231 tenders received, and the contract with Messrs. Wilkinson and Company?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. E. STANHOPE) (Lincolnshire, Horncastle)
I cannot undertake to produce copies of tenders received for these contracts; but if my hon. Friend would like to see a copy of the contract with Messrs. Wilkinson, I shall be very happy to show it to him.
