§ 124. Mr. Erroll
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury how many copies of "The Times" are purchased daily for use by the Central Office of Information; and what reduction in the supply has been made since the cut in newsprint on 6th November.
§ Mr. Jay
The Central Office of Information purchases 82 copies of "The Times," of which 59 are required in connection with overseas publicity and 14 for the regional offices of the Department. No reduction has been made since the cut in newsprint on 6th November, since the number of copies purchased is the minimum required by the Department.
