HC Deb 20 March 1923 vol 161 cc2361-2W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is now the average daily of population and the total amount per head of population spent, nationally and locally, on relief in the years 1820 and 1922?


The following are the figures desired by my hon. Friend, but perhaps I ought to point out that relative burdens cannot be fairly compared on the basis of population only, without taking into account the growth of national wealth and numerous other factors.

number of the OFFICIAL REPORT of Debates put into circulation; and what is the average daily number of copies sold?


3,125 copies of each daily part of the OFFICIAL REPORT of Debates are printed. Of this number 1,850 are distributed gratuitously to Members of Parliament and for the public service. The average daily number of copies sold is approximately 1,100.
