HC Deb 12 February 1946 vol 419 c51W
Flight-Lieutenant Haire

asked the Secretary of State for War if it is proposed to continue the production of the A.B.C.A. pamphlets in the Army; and whether he will state the total cost per copy issued and the amount of newsprint involved.

Major Lloyd

asked the Secretary of State for War how many tons of paper were used by A.B.C.A. for their weekly pamphlets in 1945; and how many tons are being used at the present time.

Mr. Lawson

It is intended to continue the supply of bulletins on current affairs to the Army and they are still being produced by the War Office. Proposals for future supply are under consideration. The cost per copy issued for paper and printing is approximately two-thirds of a penny. The quantity of paper used in each fortnightly issue is about 2½ tons. 146 tons of paper were used during 1945.
