HC Deb 19 December 1975 vol 902 cc815-6W
Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what publications for free issue to sections of the public are produced by his Department; and what is the total annual cost of the educational work done to propagate Great Britain's defence policies, namely, meetings, lectures, free literature, Press adverts, etc.

Mr. Mason

Apart from recruiting and similar literature, the only free publications issued to the public are the "Defence" pamphlet and "Our Contribution to the Price of Peace". They cost in total about £2,750 to produce.

The purpose of other educational work, of the kind mentioned in the Question, is to encourage recruiting or to provide information about the Services and their rôle within the Government's overall defence policy.
