I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he will insert in the tender forms about to be issued for Ireland a similar clause to that inserted for the commissary bakeries at Aldershot, Shorncliffe, &c., in England, that tenders would be only accepted from millers, thereby insuring the supply of home-manufactured flour?

The same form of tender is now in use for flour, both in England and Ireland, the stipulation as to millers having been withdrawn from the English form.

Am I to understand that the Irish millers tender for the supply the same as they do in England?

Am I to understand that there is a new form of tender which boycotts the native producer from tendering to supply ships in Ireland or England?

I think my hon. Friend will perfectly understand my answer when he sees it in print.
