§ 35. Mr. BILLING
asked whether, in view of the disquieting statement that officers whose duty it is to condemn Government motor cars as unfit for service are buying in, or causing to be bought in at bargain prices, sound and expensive cars for their own private use, he will consider the advisability of having all Government property sold by public auction and will abolish the present system of private tender?
§ Mr. FORSTER
I am not aware of the disquieting statement to which the hon. Member refers. If he will bring any specific instances to my notice, I will have them investigated at once.
§ Mr. BILLING
If I do will he also consider the advisability of selling all Government property by public auction and not by private tender?
