Volume 504: debated on Wednesday 27 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what the (a) total, (b) production and (c) staff cost was of the preparation and publication of his Department’s White Paper on Scotland’s future in the United Kingdom; how many copies were printed; and to whom they were distributed. (313053)

The production cost of “Scotland’s Future in the United Kingdom”, including typesetting, printing, binding, mailing and TSO fees was £5,968.39. The preparation of the White Paper was the work of civil servants employed in the Scotland Office as part of their normal duties and therefore incurred no additional cost. A total of 1,055 copies were printed; these were divided between the Scotland Office, Parliament and TSO. Of these 750 were used by the Scotland Office for laying in Parliament, distribution to stakeholders and internal departmental use.
