HC Deb 21 May 1903 vol 122 cc1341-2
MR. JOYCE (Limerick)

To ask the Secretary of State for War if he will state how many tenders were submitted for the meat contract of the Limerick Garrison this year; when the tender which got the contract was accepted; and whether the accepted tender was the lowest.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick). Ten tenders were submitted, and the tender which got the contract was

act as second in command. To replace those officers by permanent seconds in command would cause great difficulties when the time arrives for the ultimate absorption of the supernumeraries thereby created.
