HC Deb 26 March 1914 vol 60 cc528-9

asked the Chief Secretary whether the samples of woollen and linen cloths, canvas, frieze, blankets, and other goods to be inspected at Mountjoy, Belfast, and Cork prisons by intending contractors for the supply of these articles to the Irish Prisons Board for the year 1914 are of Irish manufacture; and whether any consideration is given by the Board to the fact that persons tendering state that they are prepared to supply goods of Irish manufacture?


Some of the samples referred to are of Irish manufacture, and full consideration is given by the General Prisons Board to the claims of Irish manufacture as they are anxious to obtain such goods where practicable.
