HC Deb 26 November 1958 vol 596 cc44-5W
65. Mr. Langford-Holt

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty why lot 7, representing 117 tons 10 cwt. of bronze propellers, was withdrawn from a recent sale of Admiralty surplus; and when it is intended to offer this lot by public auction or public tender.

Mr. Allan

After the invitations to tender were issued on 31st March, 1958, it was found that seven bronze propellers weighing approximately 117½ tons had been inadvertently included as lot 7 when, in fact, they had already been sold in November, 1957. I regret any inconvenience this may have caused.
