HC Deb 18 February 1964 vol 689 cc178-9W
Mr. Stainton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give details of the circulation figures of the Bulletin for Industry aril the Looking Ahead series of broadsheets, a broad classification of the type of recipients of the documents, and an appreciation of their effectiveness.

Mr. Green

The numbers distributed are 22,195 and 192,000 respectively. Bulletin for Industry goes to employers' and management associations, to trade unions, Industrialists, chambers of commerce, lecturers and teachers and to newspapers and periodicals.

The main distribution of the Looking Ahead series of broadsheets is divided between industry, including trade unions, and educational establishments. There is also a distribution of both publications to a number of public libraries and private individuals as well as to Government Departments and local authorities.

Their effectiveness can be judged by the regular demand, which in the case of Broadsheets has doubled within a year, and the large number of requests for additional copies on particular subjects. In the case of Bulletin for Industry the subject matter is frequently given additional publicity in the daily press and periodicals.
