§ Mr. Stanley
[pursuant to his reply, 6 April 1987, c.87]: My Department, in conjunction with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, has so far had printed 16,000 copies of the leaflet "20 Questions on Defence". The cost of production, which includes the staff costs of production but not the preparation of the document, was approximately £3,260. Of the 9,830 copies so far distributed, some 260 have gone directly to members of the general public in response to requests for information. The balance have been distributed to Ministers, peers, MPs, United Kingdom MEPs, interested groups, regular recipients of FCO defence and disarmament information material, and NATO and overseas posts. It is assumed that most of these have been, or will be, passed to the public.
