To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment how many copies of the 1994–95 Employment Service annual report and accounts were published; how they were distributed; and what was the cost of printing and distribution. [38496]

Responsibility for the subject of the question has been delegated to the Employment Service agency under its chief executive. I have asked him to arrange for a reply to be given.

Letter from M.E.G. Fogden to Mr. David Hinchliffe dated 23 October 1995:

The Secretary of State has asked me to reply to your question about the printing and distribution costs of the 1994–1995 Employment Service (ES) Annual Report and Accounts.
In 1994–1995, HMSO printed off 5,500 copies of the Annual Report and Accounts. The ES had 5,000 of these copies at a cost of £16,890 and then arranged distribution of the Report by post from two central sites. The total cost of distribution was £1,390.15.
HMSO also distribute the Report to the Vote Office, the Printed Paper Office of the House of Lords and to HMSO bookshops, for sale to the public, at no cost to the ES.
I hope this is helpful
