HC Deb 28 February 1889 vol 333 c585

asked the Secretary of State for War whether it was true, as announced in the Chemist and Druggist trade journal, that Messrs. Seabury and Johnson, of New York, had been "appointed contractors to the British Government for the supply of surgical dressings;" and whether that meant that the above firm had obtained a contract; and, if so, whether it was because their prices were lower than those of native firms, or because their goods were better?


No, Sir; the Medical Department has no contract with Messrs. Seabury and Johnson, or with any other American firm, for the supply of surgical dressings.
