HC Deb 01 August 1935 vol 304 cc2872-3W

asked the Minister of Transport what is the total expenditure involved in the preparation, compilation, printing and distributing of the Highway Code; and whether any grant is being made to the Safety First Association in this connection?


The cost of printing the 16½ million copies of the Highway Code is £15,000; the cost of distribution involves an adjustment with the Post Office of about £20,000. The preparation and compilation of the Code has involved no special expense. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
