Public Bills

Mr. Amess: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) if he will list the public bills for which his Department is responsible which were reprinted during each of the last three sessions; what the reason was for reprinting each bill; and what the cost was; [10880]

(2) if he will list the public acts for which his Department is responsible which were reprinted during each of the last three years; what the reason was for reprinting each Act; and what the cost was. [10943]

John Healey: Bills can be reprinted several times during the course of their passage through both Houses of Parliament. The printing of Bills is, however, a matter for the respective Bill Offices in both Houses. Detailed information relating to the reprinting of Treasury Bills is not available.

The responsibility for the printing of Acts of Parliament rests with the Queen's Printer within Her Majesty's Stationery Office who has let a contract for their printing and publication under which the contractor is obliged to maintain availability while an Act remains in force. No information is available as to whether any Treasury sponsored Acts have been reprinted.
