HC Deb 01 March 1906 vol 152 c1317

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether his attention has been drawn to the dissatisfaction caused by the threatened change in the source of supplies of stationery and printed matter, namely, from local printers to His Majesty's Stationery Office, in use in County Courts; and whether, in view of the inconvenience and delays which will occur in the work of Courts, and the loss entailed on the local printers and the dismissal of some of their employees, he proposes to take any action in the matter.


The supplies of printing for the County Courts will continue to be drawn from the local printers, provided that the Controller of the Stationery Office is satisfied as to the reasonableness of the charges. Stationery, however, as distinguished from printing, will be supplied (saving existing orders) from the Stationery Office, as it appears that a large economy can be effected in this manner.
