HC Deb 24 November 1958 vol 596 c2W
19. Mr. Hale

asked the Minister of Supply whether, in view of the recession of trade in the north-western area, he will give instructions that all lists of authorised contractors for Government supplies should be reopened with a view to the inclusion of qualified contractors from that area.

Mr. Aubrey Jones

Any qualified contractor whose name is not already on the Ministry of Supply trades lists is free to apply at any time for inclusion.
