HC Deb 04 November 1920 vol 134 cc615-6W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions the quantity of wool disposed of by his Department to Messrs. James Hill and Sons, Messrs. Francis Willey and Company, Mr. W. C. Gaunt, and any other Bradford merchants between the dates of 30th November, 1919, and 30th September, 1920, with the names of the firms and individuals concerned, the description and price of the wool, with the dates of order, sale, and delivery?


To give particulars of all the sales of wool to Bradford buyers in the ten months referred to would involve a great amount of labour, and, moreover, it would not be in the public interest to establish the precedent that such commercial details should be disclosed.
