HC Deb 10 March 1902 vol 104 c872
MR. JOYCE (Limerick)

I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether the articles bought under Vote 8, Item G, are bought by contract; and, if so, whether tenders are invited by publishing specifications, or whether officials make contracts privately.


The articles referred to are bought by contract. Tenders are invited and the contracts are placed on the resulting competitions in the usual way.
