HC Deb 28 July 1910 vol 19 c2336

asked whether provision can be made whereby any State Department which arranges a contract, the work of which is executed abroad, can impose upon the foreign employer conditions similar to those which would be imposed by the Fair Contracts Clause if the work were performed in this country; and, if so, will the wording of the Clause be amended accordingly?


My right hon. Friend has asked me to answer this question. Any well-substantiated complaint regarding a contractor executing work abroad would be taken into account by the Government Department concerned when any further contracts had to be made.
