§ Mr. Lawson
asked the Lord President of the Council how many dummy bound volumes of Hansard have been produced in the size which this House refrained from approving on 5th May; by what authority such volumes were ordered and at what cost to public funds; and if he will place any such volumes in the Library.
§ Mr. Foot
Six copies of dummy bound volumes, in A4 size, of the two week's compilation of collected daily parts of theOfficial Report of both an average and above average thickness have been produced. The production was authorised by the Controller of Her Majesty's Stationery Office to illustrate the effect on the size of bound volumes of Hansard of a possible change to A4 size. The total cost of the 12 volumes was £147.50. Copies of both dummy volumes will be placed in the Library.
