Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
asked the Lord President of the Council on how many occasions since 1st January 1977 information has been prepared by his Department, at public expense, along the lines of the answer from the Chancellor of the Exchequer (Official Report, 14th July 1978, c. 802); what has been the total cost to public funds; and if he will make this publicly financed information available to any hon. Members wishing to receive it, provided that they arrange to collect it.
Mr. William Price
None. Background notes are prepared primarily for Ministers. If information is requested which is covered by any note, it would be provided to any Member of either House.
