HC Deb 15 May 1968 vol 764 c1221
48. Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the cost per annum to public funds of the publication, "Scottish Economic Development: Quarterly Report".

Mr. Millan

About £2,000.

Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

As this glossy publication seems to consist almost exclusively of highly tendentious puffs for the Transport Bill and the Secretary of State for Scotland—no doubt both need those puffs—would it not be more seemly if it were financed from Labour Party funds?

Mr. Millan

I think it an excellent publication. I am sorry that the hon. Member either does not read it or, if he does, does not understand it.
