HC Deb 01 December 1908 vol 197 c1260

I beg to ask the Postmaster - General what was the sum spent on baskets for his Department for use in Scotland; and how much of that sum was placed with Scottish firms with their places of business in Scotland.


The number of baskets required specifically for use in Scotland is very small, only 100 have been asked for this year; and these can be supplied from the general stock. For the general order no tenders were received from any firm in Scotland. Three charitable institutions in Scotland tendered, and I hope I may be able to give an order for trays to one of them.
