§ The Attorney-General
No. It would not be right to establish a general practice of publishing comment received by the commission on its working papers, because such comment is frequently made on the basis that it would be treated as confidential. It is important that members of the public should feel free to comment on this basis.
§ Mr. Michael Cocks
asked Mr. Attorney-General how many copies of Working Paper No. 49, "Transfer of Land, Rentchages", have been printed; and how the cost of 72p was determined.
§ Mr. Kenneth Baker
I have been asked to reply.
1,500 copies were printed. The selling price of 72p was based on estimated production costs plus Her Majesty's Stationery Office's publishing overheads.
