asked the Minister of Supply how much of the oil-well drilling equipment manufactured by Woolwich Arsenal for the British Oilfield Equipment Company has been put into service in this country and overseas, respectively; and what reports have been received on its operation.

I have no information regarding the first part of the Question, and have received no reports on the performance of the equipment supplied

Would it not be a good idea for the Minister to get this information, in order to see if the products are satisfactory?

In this matter we stand in the same relationship as contractors to customers, and so far the customers have made no comments.

I think the answer to that would anticipate a reply to one of the Questions the hon. Member has in mind for later on this month.
