asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what revenue is derived from advertisements in the London Telephone Directory; and whether such advertisements are obtained by canvassers in the employ of his Department or whether the advertising space is let out to contract?
The gross revenue derived from advertisements in the London Telephone Directory for 1928 was £60,500. Advertisements for the Telephone Directories are obtained by an advertising contractor.
In view of the very bulky and cumbersome nature of this book, does my hon. Friend consider it fair and reasonable to insert full-page advertisements in it, and still more interleaved advertisements?
My question is whether the contractors who supplied the advertisements were found by the Treasury by tender, or whether they were just given to one ordinary contractor?
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what revenue is derived from advertisements in Government publications; and whether any restrictions are placed upon the classes of advertisements which are accepted?
As regards the first part of the question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave him on 21st February. The answer to the second part of the question is in the affirmative.
