Mr WISE - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow : -

1.   The inquiries which it is necessary to make are not yet complete, but they will be expedited as much as possible, so as to enable an early decision to be given.

2.   It would be opposed to the spirit of public tendering to decline the lowest tender received if in other respects the tenderer is satisfactory. The Department is not aware of all the factors which influence tenderers when preparing their tenders.
