HC Deb 22 October 1982 vol 29 c213W
Mr. Morgan

asked the Attorney-General how much approximately it would cost to answer the question of the hon. and learned Member for Denbigh, which he declined to answer on the ground that to do so would involve disproportionate cost, Official Report, 29 July, c. 673.

The Attorney-General:

I am satisfied that the cost of answering the hon. and learned Member's earlier question would be well in excess of £200, but it is not possible to estimate the actual cost with any degree of accuracy without doing much of the work which would be required to answer that question, including identifying and considering a sample of the several hundred files involved.
