HC Deb 17 November 1919 vol 121 cc620-1
68. Brigadier-General CROFT

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether his attention has been called to a poster in use all over the country, entitled "The Prime Minister to Employers": what is the total cost of this poster: and whether the expense is borne by any private institution or whether it is borne by the taxpayers?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirma- tive, and to the second part £1,695. As regards the third part, the expense is borne partly oil the Stationery Office Vote and partly on the Vote of the Ministry of Labour.

General CROFT

Will the right hon. Gentleman inform the House how it is possible for these posters to be posted in every part of the country and in all our great cities at such a cost? Does it include the cost of posting? And for the benefit of political organisations—and more especially the National party—will the right hon. Gentleman inform us how we can get our posting done at such a cost?


It is a matter of ability.

Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

Will this Vote come before the House?
