§ Sir JOHN SPEAR
asked the Secretary of State for War why contracts for the supply of meat to the Army are for two months instead of for the usual period; and is it contemplated supplying the Army through supply institutes, or obtaining goods by open tender as at present?
§ Mr. HAROLD BAKER
Changes are being made in order to secure a better system of meat supply for the Army. All contracts will, as before, be Government contracts, placed after competitive tendering.
