§ Sir E. Errington
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many copies were sent out of Survey of Information Needs of Mechanical Engineers; and what was the total cost thereof, including paper and postage.
§ Mr. Crosland
About 5,000 copies are being dispatched at an estimated cost in postage of about £200. This survey is being conducted by the Library Association with support from my Department, through the National Lending Library for Science and Technology, which has been represented on the steering committee. Support is taking the form of dispatching the copies and receiving and mechanically processing the replies.
