HC Deb 29 January 1941 vol 368 cc581-2W
Dr. Little

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, as many small contractors in Northern Ireland have lost their livelihood owing to the war, he will make arrangements whereby these men shall receive a share of the War Office contracts placed in Ulster?

Captain Margesson

The contracts with which the War Office is concerned are mainly building contracts, and it is the policy of the Department to give full opportunity to small contractors to obtain work which they are capable of performing with efficiency and punctuality.
