HC Deb 26 June 1930 vol 240 cc1363-4W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will give a list of the newspapers circulating in the United Kingdom and the trade papers in which advertisements under the heading of Empire Buying were inserted during the past year by the Empire Marketing Board, and the amount paid to each paper?


The Empire Marketing Board have, during the past year, advertised in over 300 papers, circulating in all parts of the United Kingdom. I am afraid that I am unable to give the detailed information asked for by the hon. Member in view of the amount of labour and the cost that would be involved in compiling and printing a list of the papers used and the amounts paid to each.
