HC Deb 12 March 1963 vol 673 c122W
38. Mr. Hannan

asked the Postmaster-General what is the estimated annual expenditure by the Post Office on printing and paper; and what proportion of this expenditure is incurred in Scotland.

Mr. Mawby

Expenditure on printing and paper is running at about £5 million a year, most of which is covered by contracts placed by the Stationery Office. In the current year the Post Office has itself placed orders totalling about £800,000, but no Scottish firm has successfully tendered for any of this.
