HC Deb 05 August 1966 vol 733 c195W
Mr. John Wells

asked the Minister of Aviation what was the total spent by his Department on advertising in the past year; and by what sum he intends to reduce it in the current year as a result of the present economic situation.

Mr. Mulley

The total spent on advertising, including that on civil aviation functions since transferred to the Board of Trade, in the last financial year was £57,600, mainly on staff recruitment. Expenditure in the current year will be a charge to the Vote of the Department to which the functions of the Ministry of Aviation are transferred and will be determined by recruitment needs. I would however not expect any significant reduction while strengths are below complement.
