§ 76. Sir J. Mellor
asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the cost so far incurred of the census of distribution.
§ Mr. Bottomley
The cost of preparatory work for the census of distribution authorised under the Statistics of Trade Act, 1947, is approximately £7,000. Almost the whole of the cost was incurred in preparing forms of return which will be used in taking the postponed census.
