HC Deb 26 February 2002 vol 380 c1230W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the publications issued by his Department in each of the last four years; and what the(a) circulation,(b) cost and(c) purpose of each was. [34188]

Angela Eagle

Details of the titles and costs of all the applications produced by the Home Office from 1 April 1999 to 31 March 2001 have been placed in the Library. Prior to 1 April 1999, the production of printed material was not centralised and no records exist.

Documents distribution is largely carried out by the commissioning client and no central circulation records are held. The purpose of printed material is to communicate Home Office policies to a wide range of target audiences including the general public and stakeholders, such as the police, courts and criminal justice system, and crime reduction organisations.
