The total cost of all social functions organised by local savings committees in England and Wales during the calendar year 1947, was £26,233, an average weekly cost of £504. These expenses were paid from the Vote of the National Savings Committee. To obtain separate figures for expenditure, including advertising, on concerts and dances would involve analysing over 1,300 local savings committee accounts. This would take up a disproportionate amount of official time.
