HC Deb 13 July 1961 vol 644 cc70-1W
79. Mr. Mayhew

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations why the information bulletin circulated from the High Commissioner's Office in Delhi is cyclostyled and not printed.

Mr. Braine

There are many information bulletins issued from the High Commissioner's Office in New Delhi and most of them are printed. The daily information bulletin issued by the British Information Services, however, to which I assume the hon. Member is referring, is intended mainly for reproduction in the Press and not for general reading. It is cyclostyled, since this can be done in two to three hours, as against printing which would take very much longer. I am told that the Press prefer it cyclostyled.
