HC Deb 24 May 1900 vol 83 cc1094-5
COLONEL LONG (Worcestershire, Evesham)

I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office the name and address of the firm who tendered for acceptance at the Victoria and Albert Docks during April last, in fulfilment of their contract, over 400 tons of hay, which was rejected.


I have not the address at the moment. The name of the contractors is Young Brothers; but it is only right to say that some evidence tending to excuse them from blame in the matter was given before the Committee on Army Contracts, of which the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Leeds is chairman, at its last sitting.
