HC Deb 20 March 1987 vol 112 c637W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what was the cost to his Department both in manpower and material of producing the leaflet "A Growing Health Service for a Healthier Wales"; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

The final cost to the Department of design and photographic work, printing, publication and distribution of the leaflet is just over £9,000. In addition, the estimated cost of time spent on the project by a small number of Welsh Office staff in the normal course of their duties is £4,000. 1 regard it as a perfectly proper function of my Department to provide factual information about the Health Service to those who use it and that is what we have done.
