HC Deb 29 October 1957 vol 575 c24
42. Miss Burton

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will consider enlarging the grant made to the British Standards Institution so that their new publication, "Shoppers' Guide", may be made available to a wider public at a cheaper price.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

I welcome the appearance of this and other guides to shoppers. The future grant to the Institution will be considered shortly when the financial estimates for 1958–59 are prepared.

Miss Burton

In view of the widespread confusion on the whole question of the law of libel, will the Minister be prepared to make a statement in the next Session as to the effect of these books being sold by the ordinary newsagents, being given publicity on the B.B.C. and being reported in detail in the Press?

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

I should like to see that Question on the Order Paper.
