asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will arrange to have displayed in the Library a graph showing the daily sales of Hansard?

In present circumstances I am most reluctant to add to statistical work of this kind, and I do not think that the production of daily figures, whether in graph form or otherwise, would be justifiable.

Would the Minister be prepared to indicate the figures, perhaps upon a weekly basis, to any Member who is interested in this subject?

I do not want to add to work of this kind in the Department if it can be avoided.

Is the Minister really saying that any work is involved? The Stationery Office must know the figures.

If the hon. and gallant Member wants to have the figure for any particular week, I will do my best to supply it.
