§ 34. Sir John Hall
asked the Secretary of State for Trade what estimate has been made of the average number of man-hours taken to answer the 24–page questionnaire entitled Inquiry into Wholesaling and Dealing for 1974.
§ Mr. Deakins
Such an estimate could not be made without disproportionate effort. The time taken by a business to complete a questionnaire depends on the type of form received and how readily the business has the information available.
