§ 67. Mr. BANFIELD
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will state the identifiable and continued net saving per annum during each of the last five financial years resulting to the Stationery Office and other Government Departments from the performance within the Stationery Office by duplicating processes of work which would otherwise be given to outside printing and/or duplicating firms?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Duff Cooper)
The economy due to the centralisation of certain duplicating work in the Stationery Office and to the use, for suitable work, of modern duplicating processes in lieu of printing can be ascertained in individual cases, and is undoubtedly substantial in the aggregate. I regret, however, that it is not possible without undue labour to identify the net annual saving in the aggregate in the manner desired by the hon. Member.
