HC Deb 04 September 1895 vol 36 cc1693-4
MR. JOHN REDMOND (Waterford)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty, whether it is the intention of the Government to give any of the Naval pork contract to the merchants of Cork; and, whether he will consider, in awarding the contracts between Irish and Foreign contractors, that the merchants of Ireland are obliged to pay Imperial taxes for the support of the Navy?


Questions of this kind do not come usually before me, but I can assure the hon. Member that the merchants of Cork will be dealt with fairly. The tenders for the next supply of pork are not yet due.
