asked the Minister of Food what is the paid circulation of the monthly publication of his Department, "Food and Nutrition"; what is the cost in wages and salaries of the staff employed in its production; what is the annual profit or loss; and what special purpose is served by its appearance.

The present paid circulation of "Food and Nutrition" is about 3,500. The cost of Ministry of Food staff employed in its production is estimated at under £30 per month. Taking into account Stationery Office expenses and receipts there is at present a net loss of about £6 per month. The publication is designed primarily to assist Domestic Science Teachers and was originally issued as a free bulletin in July, 1943, at the request of the Board of Education.
