§ MR. J. W. CROMBIE (Kincardineshire)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty who are the contractors who supply lubricating oil to the Navy; and what, price is paid for it?
§ MR. MACARTNEY
Lubricating oil for the Navy is supplied by limited tender from selected exporting firms, and is accepted upon approved samples, and at the most favourable price. I am not prepared to give the names of the contractors or the prices paid.
