HC Deb 23 March 1905 vol 143 cc943-4

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether the Director of Army Contracts makes any periodic Reports; and if so, to whom, and for what periods; and whether there is any, and if so what, objections to laying them before Parliament.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Arnold-Forster.) Annual Reports on Army contracts have always been made and will be continued. The Reports are addressed to the Financial Member of the Council. They have always been treated as confidential documents, and will continue to be so treated.
