HC Deb 26 November 1914 vol 68 c1334W

asked the Under-Secretary for War whether he is aware that only a limited number of electrical contractors are being given an opportunity of tendering for Army contracts; and whether he will take steps to see that a wider opportunity is given for the distribution of contracts and consequent employment?


It is not clear whether the hon. Member refers to contracts for electrical stores or for lighting installations. In either case I shall be glad to receive from the hon. Member the names of the contractors whom he has in mind, as there is every desire to distribute orders as widely as possible.
