HC Deb 15 March 1976 vol 907 cc398-9W
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.
