HC Deb 30 October 1984 vol 65 c871W
Mr. Hayes

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how much his Department spent in 1983–84 on the purchase of newspapers, periodicals, books and other published reading material.

Mr. Trippier

My Department's total expenditure on these items in 1983–84 was £1.849 million, of which £0.765 million was with Her Majesty's Stationery Office. This figure excludes expenditure incurred on behalf of the Department of Energy but includes purchases for the Monopolies and Mergers Commission and the Office of Fair Trading.
