§ Sir Michael Havers
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many issues of Employment News are published each year by his Department; how many copies of each issue are printed; how many companies and firms are sent copies; and what is the annual cost of printing and postage.
§ Mr. John Grant
The usual monthly print order forEmployment News is 108,000 copies but this number may he exceeded when it is anticipated that a particularly topical issue might create extra demand. The number of issues published each year is 12. More than 45,000 copies are sent out to 10,000 companies and firms each month. The cost of printing for the period 1st April 1977 287W to 31st March 1978 was £30,360—provisional—while postal costs over the same period amounted to approximately £26,000.
