§ Mr. SNOWDEN
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if a tender for clothing has been received from 1642W Messrs. Blum, Cohen, and Masser, of Leeds, a trade firm of good financial standing, and if such tender has been accepted and, if not, why; and will the War Office give further consideration to this matter?
§ Mr. FORSTER
An application has been received from this firm for a clothing contract. They were informed after inspection that their services were not likely to be required, but I am now arranging for a further inspection of their premises.
