HC Deb 18 March 1937 vol 321 c2287W
Mr. Thorne

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he can give the House any information in connection with the contract for the supply and erection of steelwork for 38 hangars and 41 tenders; how many firms quoted for the work; what was the difference between the lowest and highest tender; how many of the quotations were identical; and what was the observation of the Comptroller and Auditor-General about the matter?

Sir P. Sassoon

The hon. Member will find all the available information on this subject in the report of the Comptroller and Auditor-General prefixed to the Air Services Appropriation Account, 1935, which was recently presented to the House. As the hon. Member is doubtless aware the Appropriation Account will in due course be examined by the Public Accounts Committee.
