HC Deb 19 June 1973 vol 858 cc67-8W
27. Mr. Shersby

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will improve the provision of leaflets for welfare and health benefits which are available in post offices.

Mr. Dean

This is a problem of distribution, which is being improved. About 18 million leaflets issued by the Department are distributed every year through post offices, and problems arise only when stocks need to be replenished. In consultation with the Post Office, we are tightening up the reordering system.
