Pendles, Royal Ordnance and Hine are each demonstrating an anti-tank gun to an overseas delegation; Pendles' model performs the best, leaving Astor Harris confident of receiving the order - and securing his own position - while Hine's second-hand gun fails partway through. Having bribed the High Commissioner though, he is certain of getting the order; when Gibb realises this he asks Hine to deliberately lose - having his own reasons for wanting to keep Harris in his position - in return for finding another buyer for Hine's guns. Hine visits the Minister from the delegation and deliberately offends her; telling him to get out she then summons Gibb. For political reasons - exposing the corruption of the High Commissioner and his allies at home - she explains she will still be buying from Hine.
