HC Deb 06 March 1978 vol 945 c456W
Mr. Speed

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the national and local daily and weekly newspapers and journals purchased for his Department.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

No central record is kept of newspapers and periodicals purchased by a large number of separate Home Office establishments throughout the country. In the Home Office main building, although all the national dailies and many periodicals are taken, only the main provincial newspapers are received regularly.
