§ Mr. Gordon Brown
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the cost to his Department of distributing information and material on private health insurance to his Department's employees.
§ Mr. Butler
Information was last distributed in 1983 using the Department's existing distribution organisation. It is not possible separately to identify the cost. At one Ministry of Defence establishment a small amount of overtime was wrongly incurred in organising internal distribution. The cost amounted to approximately £100.
