§ 64. Mr. Randall
asked the Secretary of State for War if the standard conditions of Government contracts for stores purchases apply to commercial firms tendering to his Department for the supply of spring interior mattresses: and whether he is satisfied with the particulars of costings from recent tenders.
§ Mr. Profumo
Yes, the appropriate standard conditions apply. I am satisfied with the prices obtained from competitive tendering for recent contracts for these mattresses.
