The general grant to the British Standards Institution will in the 1958–59 financial year probably amount to £150,000, an increase of £10,000 on the current financial year's general grant. In addition to this general grant, the Board of Trade has in the current financial year given the British Standards Institution £10,000 specifically for the extension of its work on consumer protection: this now includes "Shopper's Guide." It is for the Institution to decide the best way of promoting the success of this publication. I cannot make any statement about renewal of the additional grant.
