§ MR. CLAUDE HAY (Shoreditch, Hoxton)
I bog to ask the Secretary to the Treasury by what date the contractor for the building of the cavalry barracks at Tidworth is under an obligation to complete the building, and what weekly penalties will be enforced in the event of non-fulfilment of the terms of the contract.
§ CAPTAIN NORTON
Perhaps the hon. Member will allow me to answer this Question. The contract date for completion of these stables is 30th January next. The penalties for non-completion under the contract have been fixed at a figure which it is considered is ample to safeguard the Department.
