§ Mr. David Price
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is the total number of different forms which his Department, and its subordinate agencies, currently have available for different purposes requiring completion by members of the general public; and how that number compares with the answer given to the hon. Member for Eastleigh on 8th March 1976.
§ Mr. Tomlinson
There are currently 84 different forms which my right hon. Friend's Department may require to be completed by members of the public in this country and abroad. This figure includes forms issued at overseas posts on behalf of other Departments.
The answer given to the hon. Member on 8th March 1976 was 96, and I confirm that the numbers are continually reviewed in the light of changing requirements.
