§ 49. Mr. DAY
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs the number of schools in the United Kingdom which have applied for poster reproductions and leaflets issued by the Empire Marketing Board; whether these posters and leaflets are being regularly supplied as issued; and has he any information of the number of schools in various parts of the Empire that are receiving supplies?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for DOMINION AFFAIRS (Mr Lunn)
Over 21,000 schools in the United Kingdom have individually applied to be placed on the Board's standing list to receive the Board's special school poster reproductions and leaflets. Issues of this material are made three times a year to all schools who have applied. Schools in the Empire overseas who apply for copies of the Board's posters are not placed on the Board's standing list, since it is felt that any periodical issue of the kind made to schools in the United Kingdom would go beyond the terms of the Vote for Empire marketing. So far as stocks permit, however, they are provided with a selection of appropriate full-sized posters.
