§ Mr. Maclean
asked the Minister of Supply, with regard to an order for a large number of pulley blocks now being 601W put out to tender, why the firm of Tritonia, Limited, has not been included in those firms; whether he is aware that this firm has already executed several orders for other Government Departments for their patent pulley block; and whether he will now include this firm among those who are invited to tender?602W
§ Sir A. Duncan
I am aware that this firm have secured orders for their patent pulley block from certain Government Departments. They were not invited to tender on this occasion as it was considered that they were not adapted for the production of the particular type of pulley block required.
