HC Deb 20 June 1927 vol 207 cc1469-70
22. Mr. HURD

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how much is being spent by the Empire Marketing Board by various means, and especially poster newspaper advertisements, to encourage the habit of buying British Home and Empire foodstuffs?


The expenditure of the Empire Marketing Board generally is designed to further the sale of Empire produce, which includes home produce, in this country. The amount which has been provisionally allocated for the Board's scheme of poster advertising in the current financial year is £125,000. The amount allocated for newspaper advertising for the same period is also £125,000.
