HC Deb 06 July 1911 vol 27 c1464W

asked whether the paper for the postage stamp contract was put up no tender, and, if not, will it be done in future; if it is hand-made paper; who are the makers for the present contract and who were the makers for the former contract?


The paper was put up to open tender in 1897 and in 1904 the then existing contract was, after negotiation, extended at reduced prices. This contract will expire shortly and it is in contemplation to invite fresh tenders. The paper is machine-made by Messrs. R. D. Turner and Company. The same paper is being used for the present stamp contract as was used for the former one.
