HC Deb 08 May 1952 vol 500 cc51-2W
47. Mr. Patrick Maitland

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether his attention has been brought to documents issued on 1st March, 1952, by the Central Office of Information under reference R2323, 2324, 2325, 2326 and 2327, entitled Government and Administration of the United Kingdom; and, since such publications are not a useful expenditure of public money when the same material is already available in standard works, if he will secure their discontinuance.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

These documents were produced by the Central Office of Information at the request of the Foreign Office, Commonwealth Relations Office and the Colonial Office for overseas circulation. The information they contain is not readily available in concise form elsewhere. The answer to the second part of the Question is, No.
