Mr. Brotherton

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many photocopiers are currently in use in the Palace of Westminster; how that figure compares with the position 12 months ago; what is the annual cost and the comparative figure 12 months ago; and how many copies were produced to date in the current year.

78 photocopiers for normal use are currently installed in the Palace of Westminster (including the Norman Shaw building) compared with 72 a year ago; the annual cost of using these copiers is £150,000 compared with £122,000 a year ago; some 4¼ million copies were produced in the first five months of 1980.
