§ 26. Mr. JOHN WARD
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether it is proposed to ask a selected number of firms to tender for the erection of the new pier at Killingholme, or whether it is proposed to publicly advertise for tenders from all contractors who choose to tender and to publish the amount of each tender submitted, as is done by all other public bodies?
The CIVIL LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Lambert)
A sufficiently large number of representative and competent firms on the Admiralty list to secure the fullest competition will be invited to tender for the erection of the new pier at Killingholme, and the usual procedure of publishing the name and address of the successful contractor will be followed.
