§ MR. HOWELL (Bethnal Green, N.E.)
asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he will grant the Return, standing on the Notice Paper for Friday, relating to Army Contracts?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. E. STANHOPE) (Lincolnshire, Horncastle)
I am afraid we cannot give this 1841 Return, because the material for it is not in our possession. I am exceedingly sorry that this is the case; and if the hon. Member will confer with me again, as he did the other day, I will explain my difficulty to him, and will give him every information which is possible on this point.
