§ 16. Mr. BROMLEY
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what orders have been placed by the Department with the Midland Coal, Coke, and Iron Company, Limited, of Apedale, Staffordshire, during the 10 years ending the 31st December, 1926, and during 1927; the value of such contracts; and if further orders are contemplated?
§ Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM
The reply to the first part of the question is none, so that the second part does not arise. No direct orders to this firm are in contemplation.
