asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many copies of his leaflet "The Nuclear Debate", which has been published by the arms control and disarmament research unit of his Department, were printed; what was the cost of their printing; what has been the basis on which they have been distributed; how many were mailed on an unsolicited basis; and what has been the postage cost of their distribution.

Fifty thousand copies of the leaflet have been printed at a cost of £2,310. Copies have been sent in bulk to meet the requests of non-governmental organisations. Copies are also being circulated to those who regularly receive the unit's quarterly arms control newsletter. In addition, a number of individual requests have been met. No unsolicited copies have been sent out. Postage has cost about £100.
