HC Deb 28 January 1954 vol 522 cc264-5W
72. Mr. Mayhew

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will give an estimate of the amount spent annually in Britain on advertising of all kinds.

Mr. Maudling

There are no official figures, but I understand that a survey of expenditure on advertising in 1952 has been carried out by the Advertising Association, and preliminary results were published in a supplement to the "Financial Times" on 25th January.
