HC Deb 14 June 1979 vol 968 c309W
Mr. Field

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what was the cost of distributing free copies of "Social Assistance" and of its summary and of holding public meetings to discuss "Social Assistance".

Mr. Prentice

Paper, printing and distribution costs for the review documents, including background papers, came to roughly £30,000. The cost of public meetings was about £10,000, the bulk of this being attributable to staff time and travel expenses.
