§ Mr. PONSONBY
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will consider the reduction of the price of the Official Report of Parliamentary Proceedings to the pre-War figure; and will he give the average weekly sales of the Report in 1922, 1923, 1924, and the present year?
Reduction of the price of the Official Report of Parliamentary Proceedings to the pre-War figure of 3d. has been considered, but, as it is estimated that this would substantially increase the already considerable loss to public funds on the sale copies, I do not think that the step is justifiable. The average weekly sales are:
1922 … 3,900 1923 … 5,750 1924 … 7,085 1925 (to date) … 5,870
