HC Deb 25 June 1928 vol 219 cc49-51W
Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that the Statistical Report on the Health of the Navy for 1925, costing 4s. 6d. per copy, was issued last February; whether inquiry has been made as to the value of the publication at so late a date on the present lines; the cost and dates of similar publications in regard to the Army and Air; and

in receipt of parish relief in Devonport and Plymouth, specifying the various categories, during each of the months of this year; and if he will give the figures for each of the months of 1927?


The following Statement contains the information asked for by the hon. Member:

whether the matter has been under the consideration of the permanent Consultative Committee on Official Statistics.


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. With regard to the remainder of the question, publications dealing with the health of the Army and of the Air Force in 1926 were published in February and January, 1928, respectively, at a price of 3s. 6d. and 2s. 6d. The Report on the Health of the Navy has not been specifically considered by the Committee on Official Statistics, and I am making further inquiry into the question of its publication.
