§ MR. GRAVES
said, he would beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty, If the tenders for the engines for the two iron-clads building at Glasgow have been decided; and, if so, to state the price named in the accepted tender, with the names of the parties who were invited to tender?
, in reply, said, the tenders in question had only been received on the 7th instant, so that they had not yet been taken into consideration. He could not, therefore, give his hon. Friend any information as to the price; but he could give him the names of the parties who had been invited to tender, if that was desired.
