§ Mr. Rifkind
[pursuant to his reply, 6 April 1987, c. 52]The time spent by officials of my Department in the preparation of "Rural Scotland" cannot be identified separately from their other duties. No estimate of the overall cost to my Department of producing the document can therefore be provided.186W
A total of 20,000 copies were printed at a cost of £12,350. Subject to demand, apart from those copies required for parliamentary, press and official use, I expect all the copies to be issued to the public.
