§ Mr. JESSE COLLINGS
asked the Secretary of State for War if, in the contracts for the supply of meat to the Army, it is stipulated that the meat supplied should be home produce; and, in case there is no such stipulation, will he state approximately the value of the foreign meat supplied and that of the home meat?
§ Mr. HAROLD BAKER
Speaking generally, Army meat contracts are free from restrictions as to place of origin of supplies, but fresh meat must be home killed. There are no statistics as to the compara-1456W tive values of meat supplied from foreign sources and from British Dominions.
