HC Deb 27 October 1980 vol 991 c2W
Mr. Rooker

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will make a statement detailing any reduction or abolition of statistics or reports by his Department since May 1979, indicating if such information is available from any other source; and what financial savings have been made by any such changes.

Mr. St. John-Stevas:

My Department has abolished two annual statistical returns concerned with library school students and library school leavers, at an annual staff saving of £7,654. Arrangements have been made to obtain similar information from other continuing surveys.
