§ Mr. MacVEAGH
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he can state the latest prices agreed to be paid by the War Office for dungaree and for khaki drill; whether these goods are 581W being bought direct or through an agent; and, if through an agent, what commission is being paid?
§ Mr. H. BAKER
All orders for dungaree and khaki have been placed direct after competitive tendering, and no question of commission arises. The prices paid under War Office contracts are treated as confidential.
