§ MR. BELLAIRS (Lynn Regis)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the rule under which the Admiralty awarded such large contracts to Kynoch, Limited, was the one under which the lowest tender secured the contract; and whether he can state if Kynoch, Limited, have been struck off the list of Admiralty contractors.
§ MR. EDMUND ROBERTSON
It is not usual, nor is it considered desirable, that information as to prices should be made public. As the whole question of mercuric chloride is under consideration it is premature to make any statement on this subject.
