§ MR. BRODIE (Surrey, Reigate)
To ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Crown Agents for the Colonies issue any information as to the results of manufacturers' tenders, and as to the names of the successful tenderers, in cases where the contracts tendered for are placed by the Crown Agents.
(Answered by Mr. Churchill.) The Crown Agents for the Colonies follow the practice of Government Departments by treating tenders as strictly confidential.
