§ 35. Sir John Hall
asked the Secretary of State for Trade what estimate was made, before circulation, of the cost to industry of completing the 24-page questionnaire entitled "Inquiry into Wholesaling and Dealing for 1974".
§ Mr. Meacher
Such an estimate could not be made without disproportionate effort. The overall cost to industry of completing the questionnaires depends largely on how readily individual businesses have the information available.
