Mr. Richard Wainwright

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how often the newspaper Employment News is produced by his Department and at what annual cost; and to whom the paper is distributed.

Mr. Booth

TheEmployment News is an external newspaper which is produced monthly, and reports on news from the whole of the Department of Employment Group covering the Manpower Services Commission, the Training Services Agency, the Employment Service Agency, which includes the Professional and Executive Recruitment, and the Health and Safety Executive. The cost of production from January to December 1975 was £27,913; the cost of the last four issues has been estimated. The newspaper, which has a fast-increasing circulation, is distributed on request to a readership covering employers, trade unions, local authorities, nationalised industries and public corporations, national and local Press, technical and trade publications, universities and polytechnics, private individuals, and, of course, Members of Parliament.
