§ 46. Mr. SANDYS
asked the Prime Minister if he will give a complete list of all firms and companies, together with addresses of the same, with whom the Government has entered into contracts of over the value of £50,000 since 8th April, 1908, when the right hon. Gentleman became Prime Minister?
§ Mr. SANDYS
In view of the unprecedented interest taken at the present time in Government contracts, cannot the right hon. Gentleman reconsider his decision?
§ Mr. SWIFT MacNEILL
Having regard to this question and the suggestion, is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Government of which he is a Member and during his own Premiership gave a contract for the building of a "Dreadnought" to an armaments company of which one of the directors was a Member of this House sitting on the opposite side, and who before the contract was given made stirring speeches about German invasion and "Dreadnoughts"?
