HC Deb 18 April 1940 vol 359 cc1141-2W
Mr. Mort

asked the Secretary of State for War why the local Trades Employers' Association, or any local contractor, were not invited to tender for three contracts, the particulars of which have been sent to him, and which they are capable of performing, to the advantage of the locality and the relief of unemployment?

Mr. Stanley

I am having inquiries made and will communicate with the hon. Member as soon as possible.
