HL Deb 10 November 1999 vol 606 c162WA
Lord Hylton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is the cost of publishing Northern Ireland statistics in their present glossy format; and what is the estimated benefit from doing so. [HL4178]

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton

The cost of publishing the latest editions of those statistics which appear in a glossy format was £81,683. The benefits of using this style are that it enhances the credibility and professionalism of the documents; helps to communicate the information in a clearer way; and is attractive and has a longer shelf life.
