HC Deb 14 March 1946 vol 420 c268W
Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster the purpose of the fortnightly publication entitled "British Zone Review;" the cost and who bears it; the printing order and annual consumption of paper; and where it is circulated.

Mr. J. Hynd

The purpose of the "British Zone Review" is to keep the personnel of the British element of the Control Commission and of the British Army of the Rhine informed of developments in the British Zone and of the problems confronting the administration. Its cost, of which I cannot give an estimate without further inquiry, is almost entirely borne by Germany. It is printed in Germany by Germans on a requisitioned German press; the annual consumption of paper, obtained from German stocks, is approximately 20 tons. The circulation is 15,000 fortnightly. Most of the copies are, of course, distributed to British personnel in Germany, but copies are also sent to newspaper editors and others in the United Kingdom and overseas as well as to hon. Members on request.
