§ 45. Mr. GRUNDY
asked the Prime Minister whether firms engaged on Government contracts are on the King's Roll: and, if not, will he issue instructions to all departments that no further contract is to be given to any firm unless on the Roll?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
I have been asked to reply. It has been a rule since June, 1921, that, save in very exceptional circumstances, firms engaged on Government contracts to whom the conditions for membership of the King's Roll are applicable must be on the King's National Roll.
