asked the Minister of Transport if the firm of R. J. P. Nicklin & Co. Ltd. is on his Department's approved fist of construction consultants sent to local authorities who act as agents for his Department; and, if so, how many times in the past three years the firm has been awarded tenders after negotiation and at what cost to his Department.
