HC Deb 27 March 1913 vol 50 c1853W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to a statement made at the annual meeting of the Secret Commissions and Bribery Prevention League (Incorporated) to the effect that a question arising out of Army contracts was at the present time under consideration; whether any such allegations have been brought to the notice of the Army Council; and, if so, whether it is proposed to take any action?

Colonel SEELY

My attention has been called to this statement. It is believed that the contracts mentioned are not Government contracts. The matter which appears to be the subject of the question is now under inquiry.
