HC Deb 24 July 1967 vol 751 c62W
Mr. Pardoe

asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what is the total cost to date of the South-West Economic Planning Council, the South-West Economic Planning Board, and the publication of the Report, "A Region with a Future".

Mr. Shore

These costs cannot easily be isolated from the wider activities of the Department in the Region. However, the salaries and other expenses of the Chairman of the South-West Economic Planning Board and his staff are now running at the rate of £35,000 per annum.

The cost of printing and publishing "A Region with a Future" was £5,540 against which should be set the sales proceeds.
