I am asking the minister if when tenders were called for the purchase of the Niobe it was stipulated that it was to be a cash price. The minister has answered that part of the price of the successful tenderer was paid I should
like to know if it was not stipulated that the price was to be a cash price, because I have information from persons who did tender on a cash basis, and their tender was refused. Therefore, I think it is in the interest of the committee that we should know what the stipulations in the tenders were.
