HC Deb 28 January 1902 vol 101 c1098
COLONEL LONG (Worcestershire, Evesham)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, whether he will have inserted in all Army contracts dealing with jam a stipulation that the jam supplied is to be made from British or Irish grown fruit.


No, Sir, such a stipulation would have the effect of excluding all Colonial produce and, further, of preventing the troops from obtaining apricot jam or marmalade.
