HC Deb 31 March 1953 vol 513 c130W
69. Mr. Holt

asked the President of the Board of Trade how much public money was spent in considering the recent application for a wood flour order, a report of which appeared in Command Paper No. 8796, under the Merchandise Marks Act, 1926.

Mr. H. Strauss

Apart from the time devoted by the Board of Trade, the cost of which it is not practicable to estimate, expenditure was limited to the sum of £59 9s. shown in the Report as the estimated cost of preparing and publishing it.
