HC Deb 06 July 1993 vol 228 c94W
Mrs. Ann Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Education how many copies have been printed of the revised edition of the booklet, "How to Become a Grant-Maintained School", published in June; what was the cost of(a) the design and (b) the production; when he proposes to make a further revision to take account of the provisions of the Education Bill; and how many copies he expects to distribute during the summer holiday period.

Mr. Robin Squire

A total of 60,000 copies of the fourth edition of this booklet have been printed so far, at a cost of £4,611 for design, £9,950 for printing and £2,957 for other production costs. Distribution is predominantly in response to requests for copies of the booklet, which over the past year have averaged almost 15,000 a month. A fifth edition will be published shortly before the provisions in the present Education Bill on acquiring grant-maintained status are brought into effect.
