§ Mr. John Grant
asked the Prime Minister why she prevented the publication of industrial relations consultative documents in the Department of Employment Gazette; what was the cost to public-funds of the resultant reprinting of the Gazette, containing the documents in an amended form; and from which Vote head the additional expenditure thus incurred will be met.
§ The Prime Minister
I have not prevented publication of industrial relations working papers in theDepartment of Employment Gazette. One working paper was found to require amendment after it had been incorporated in an original print of the September Gazette, and, as a result, the Department of Employment decided to reprint the edition. The extra cost was £3,465.85, which was charged to HMSO Printing Vote.
