No, Sir. I have no reason to suppose, and indeed I am certain it is not the case, that any firm was unduly favoured. The Executive Council, whose money is at stake in this matter and who represent the large financial and commercial interests which, in common with Isis Majesty's Government, are guaranteeing this exhibition, in the exercise of their discretion made the contract which they considered was proper, and I certainly, on behalf of that body, although I do not represent them, should dissent from any suggestion that they were influenced by any unworthy motive.
