QUESTIONS IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS. LONDON, February 14. Mr Harold-Baker, Financial' Secretary to the War Office, in reply to Mr R. Hunt, said that an alteration had been made in the specification for the supply of meat to the Army, fixing the minimum weight of Australian forequarters at 1101b, because it had been found that the restrictions with regard to the removal .of .flanks and brisket involved a larger reduction in weight than had been expected; further, that 7441b of meat, supplied by Borthwicks on October 4, and 3061b on November 30, had •been rejected on arrival as unfit for food, in consequence of it being delayed
in transit. Mr Hunt asked whether Borthwicks, had been invited to tender. i Mr Baker replied that tender forms had been issued to a large number of firms, including Borthwicks.
