HC Deb 13 February 1933 vol 274 c630
78. Mr. NORTH

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he will issue instructions that the hardwood used in building contracts entered into by his Department shall be of Empire origin?


For some years it has been the standard practice on building contracts entered into by my Department to specify solely hardwoods of Empire origin, and tenderers are also given the option of submitting for consideration alternative Empire woods which they may think suitable.
