I admit we would get more detailed information from an investigation by the Public Accounts committee. On the other hand I remind the committee that in 1956 Copeland-Chatterson Ltd. were asked to make a model. You then considered that firm to be better qualified than any other to make a model. After that, tenders were invited from other firms, and other firms were asked to make a binder of the most satisfactory model, that is the one proposed in 1956 by the Chatterson firm. That is what I gather from this letter. As tenders were received, it was noted that prices kept getting closer to those of the Copeland-Chatterson firm.
