HC Deb 09 August 1904 vol 139 c1550
SIR THOMAS DEWAR (Tower Hamlets. St. George's)

To ask the President of the Local Government Board if he will state the value of the orders for rails and engineering plant respectively, placed by the London County Council with British and foreign firms respectively, for each of the last three years.

(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) I am not in possession of the particulars asked for, but I have communicated with the County Council on the subject. I am informed that there is no complete Return from which the information desired could be readily given. I am promised, however, that it shall be collected and sent to me as soon as it can be obtained. On its receipt, I will communicate with my hon. friend.
