To ask the Lord President of the Council what is his estimate of the total cost to public funds and the volumes of newsprint that have been involved in the printing this Session of (a) the Order Paper, (b) the notices of questions, (c) the written and oral questions reprinted after appearing for the first time, (d) notices of motions, (e) Votes and Proceedings of the House, (f) Standing Committee proceedings and Division lists, (g) remaining Orders of the Day and (h) the Vote bundle as a whole.

The total cost to public funds for the supply of the Vote bundle as a whole in this Session up to the end of April, is estimated at £4·1 million. The volume of paper consumed in production of the Vote bundle for the same period is 159 tonnes.It is not possible to produce the estimated cost to public funds of printing the individual categories of the Vote bundle without incurring disproportionate expense.
