HC Deb 03 June 1931 vol 253 c202W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the oil-pipe line which is to be laid from the Iraq oilfields to Haifa will be of British materials and construction throughout?


The pipe line will be constructed by the Iraq Petroleum Company either directly or by a subsidiary company formed for the purpose. The company's agreement with the Iraq Government does not provide for the exclusive use of British materials.
