83. Sir I. Fraser

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what has been the cost of producing the monthly international review "Knowledge," published by the Central Office of Information; how many copies are distributed monthly; and how much of the cost is recovered from sales.

Mr. Mayhew

The cost to date is£1,488. Fifteen issues have been published, the first 12 consisting of 1,000 copies each and the last three of 500 each. The estimated amount received from sales is£296 at the official rate of exchange (or£190 at the free market rate). It has now been decided to discontinue distribution of a separate publication for Thailand.
