HC Deb 13 May 1952 vol 500 c101W
94 Mr. Gordon Walker

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what proportion of the Social Survey's activities in the last three years were undertaken to assist information activities and for other administrative purposes, respectively; and what are the comparable proportions envisaged in the Vote for 1952–53.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

On average over the last three years, surveys undertaken to assist information activities have been 17 per cent. of the work of the Social Survey, and surveys for other administrative purposes 83 per cent. The corresponding proportions in the 1952–3 Vote provision are 5 and 95 per cent. Respectively.
