§ Sir JOSEPH LEESE
asked the Postmaster-General whether he has observed that Messrs. Hobart, Bird, and Company, cycle manufacturers, of Coventry, advertise themselves as contractors to the home postal authorities; what contract the company now holds with the Post Office; and what has been the number of cycles supplied to the Post Office by the company during the past ten years?
§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Sydney Buxton)
Messrs. Hobart, Bird, and Company hold no contract with the Post Office, and I have informed them that they have no right to describe themselves as contractors to the Home postal authorities. The only cycle they have supplied to the Post Office is one tricycle, which was supplied by them to the Post Office seven years ago.
