HC Deb 05 August 1966 vol 733 c219W
Mr. John Wells

asked the Minister of Transport what was the total spent by her department on advertising in the past year; and by what sum she intends to reduce it in the current year as a result of the present economic situation.

Mr. Swingler

Expenditure on advertising including statutory advertising, staff advertising and advertising by other government departments on behalf of the Ministry amounted to £131,000 in the financial year 1965–66.

Comparable estimated expenditure for the current financial year 1966–67 is £38,000.
