HC Deb 07 November 1912 vol 43 c1455W
Mr. FRED HALL (Dulwich)

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the Government has entered, or proposes to enter, into any arrangement with the firm of S. Pearson and Son for the supply of oil for the Navy?


No, Sir; and I can only add that whether any such contract-can be made in future is dependent on the usual comparison of tenders in respect of quality, price, accessibility of supplies, and consequent cost of freight.
