HC Deb 23 June 1910 vol 18 c614W

asked whether the Irish Local Government Board will ascertain if the contract for milk supplied to the Lurgan Union was given to the contractor who sent in the lowest tender; and, if not, what is the estimated total difference in cash on the three years' contract between the accepted tender and the lowest tender?


The lowest tender was not accepted, as it was considered by the board of guardians as being practically that of the father of the man who sent it in, a former milk contractor whose contract the guardians had cancelled with the approval of the Local Government Board. The clerk of the union estimaes the difference between the lowest tender and that accepted as about £240 in the three years covered by the contract.
