HC Deb 24 February 1916 vol 80 c826
58. Mr. KING

asked the Secretary to the Treasury what was the cost of printing the Bill, introduced last year by the Lord Chancellor, for the consolidation and simplification of the Larceny Acts; how many copies were printed; and whether the type has been broken up or is being kept set up in view of a reintroduction of the Bill?


The total cost of printing the above-mentioned Bill was £22; 1,500 copies were printed; the type has been broken up.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the lengthy nature of this Bill and the totally unnecessary character of this expenditure?


I was not aware of that.
