§ CAPTAIN DONELAN (Cork, E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether it is proposed to carry out further building operations at the Curragh; and, if so, will a preference be given to tenders from Irish slate quarries, provided the quality is as good and the price as low as tenders from other parts of the United Kingdom?
§ MR. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
The contracts made for the erection of buildings at the Curragh include the supply of materials; and I shall be very glad if the contractors are able to use Irish slates.
§ CAPTAIN DONELAN
May I ask whether the invitations for tenders contain any stipulation with regard to the use of Irish slates?
