§ Mr. Spearing
To ask the Secretary of State for Education what proposals she has made for reducing the number of statistical bulletins issued by her analytical services branch on the contracting out of their publications; and what charge will be made, other than postage, for any bulletins so published.
§ Mr. Forth
Statistical bulletins will be produced only where the information to be published is not appropriate to either a statistical press notice or a statistical volume. It is planned that there will be three regular bulletins and a small number of ad-hoc bulletins reporting the results of occasional surveys and analyses. HMSO submitted the successful bid for the publishing work and it is proposed that bulletins be priced at £3.50.
