§ Mr. Thornton
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on the price of the Official Report.
§ Mr. Gow
Following a review by Her Majesty's Stationery Office, I have authorised an increase of 55p in the price of the daily part, with corresponding increases in the prices of weekly parts, indexes, Standing Committee debates, bound volumes and subscription rates. The scale of charges for reprints of Members' speeches appearing in theOfficial Report will also be raised. Despite these increases Hansard will still receive a substantial subsidy.
