HC Deb 05 December 1906 vol 166 cc927-8
MR. CHIOZZA MONEY (Paddington, N.)

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what is the gross cost of production of the Board of Trade Journal, including rent and the salaries or a proportion of the salaries of any of the officials largely concerned in its production; what is the revenue from advertisements and sales respectively; what were the numbers printed, sold, distributed gratuitously, and left in stock respectively for the last week in June and the last week in September, 1906; and what reasons have led the Board of Trade to raise the price of the journal from 1d to 3d.

(Answered by Mr. Lloyd-George.) I regret that I am unable to give the particulars asked for by the hon. Member, but I may say that at present the journal does not pay expenses. The increase in price has been recommended by the Commercial Intelligence Committee.
