§ 108. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what arrangements are made for the printing and publicity of his Department; how, on what principle, and to whom contracts for this work relating to his Department are allocated; and, in particular, how many such contracts now exist between his Department, directly or indirectly, with the firm of D. C. Thomson Limited, Dundee.
§ Mr. J. Stuart
All printing arrangements for my Departments are made by Her Majesty's Stationery Office, who follow the principle of competitive tendering and accept the lowest satisfactory tender in each case. I understand that no contracts exist between that Department and the firm mentioned.
