HC Deb 12 June 1958 vol 589 c30W
48. Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary to the Treasury why the bookshop of Her Majesty's Stationery Office in Manchester does not sell Scottish Ordnance Survey maps.

Mr. Simon

The appointed agent for the sale of Ordnance Survey maps in Manchester has a large shop less than 100 yards from the Stationery Office bookshop. There are few inquiries for Ordnance Survey maps at the Stationery Office and for this reason only maps in regular demand are held in stock. Inquirers for other Ordnance Survey maps are directed to the official agent.
