HC Deb 31 March 1994 vol 240 cc1008-9W
Mr. Llew Smith

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many copies of his "Citizen's Charter Second Report: 1994" have been published; at what cost; to whom it has been distributed; what criteria were used in the choice of persons or organisations to which the report was distributed; and what is the equivalent information in respect of the first report.

Mr. Waldegrave

Some 8,000 copies of the "Citizen's Charter Second Report: 1994" were printed and published by HMSO. The costs of printing and publishing were borne by HMSO which aims to recover these from sales revenue. Some 14,000 copies of the first report were printed and published by HMSO on the same basis.

Some 300 copies of the second report were sent to Ministers and their permanent secretaries, departmental citizens charter liaison staff, agency chief executives, the citizens charter advisory panel and complaints task force, and a variety of others, including the Parliamentary and Local Government Ombudsmen, the secretaries of the local authority associations and the heads of the regulatory bodies. We have not kept records of those to whom the first report was distributed.
