A loss of £4,630 arose from the preparation and publication of the first six issues of the magazine "Coal." With the exception of certain costs of the Central Office of Information, the expenditure will be charged against the Vote of His Majesty's Stationery Office and all the receipts will accrue to that Vote. The magazine has been produced throughout for the National Coal Board in the sense that the Coal Board has been responsible for the editorial policy. Financial responsibility for this and certain other mining publicity was taken over by the Coal Board from the Ministry of Fuel and Power on 1st October, 1947.
