§ Mr. Assheton
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury to whom His Majesty's Stationery Office circulates "Report to Women"; why; and what is the annual cost to the taxpayer.2W
§ Mr. Jay
"Report to Women" was first issued last June, in answer to requests from women's voluntary organisations for a document giving background information on economic subjects of interest to women. It is issued only on request, largely to the office-bearers of 14 women's organisations. The circulation has increased from 1,000 to 9,000 since June, and is rising. The monthly cost of duplication and distribution is £38 for the present circulation.
