Dear Alan,

Further to my letter of the 2nd November I was duly informed by Messrs. Collyer-Bristow & Co. that you have been in touch with them and the whole matter was fully explained to you.

Although you have promised to contact them again they are still waiting to hear from you. Over a month has since gone by and naturally my mother-in-law as well as the Aunts are getting impatient about your very peculiar attitude.

In order to get things settled and sorted out as quickly as possible I propose to pay you a visit together with Val and perhaps we can prevail to make you see the whole thing in the proper perspective. No doubt you will be at home in the evenings so that it will not be necessary to advise you beforehand which evening we shall call.

Regards,

Yours sincerely.

I Miles

OUR GREATEST TRADECHARITY

MR. ROBERT LUCAS TELLS OF THIRTY YEARS' PROGRESS

THIRTY YEARS-a complete generation ! How hasit dealt with the greatest and oldest of our TradeCharities ?

In 1906 the Printers' Pension Corporation hadalready been in existence for 78 years. Its progress, ifsure, had been very slow, but with the appointment in1898 of Joseph Mortimer as Secretary, and in 1902 ofWilliam Christopher as Collector, the work began togrow until in 1906 the Corporation had an income of£10,000 per annum and was maintaining 400 beneficiaries.

Some idea of the progress which has been madeduring the last thirty years may be gathered from thefollowing figures :-
19061935
Number of Beneficiaries4001,800
Amount expended in benefits£7,500£45,000
Number of annual subscribers4,50015,000
Number of Auxiliaries2590
Number of Local Collectors220480
Amount received at Annual Festival£5,778£28,618


From 1827 to 1905 the amount raised at the 78Annual Festivals totalled £88,881 ; whereas the 30Festivals from 1906 to 1935 amounted to £720,301.

In addition to its ordinary work the Corporationin 1918 undertook the responsibility of providing forthe orphans of printers killed in the Great War,irrespective of whether the father was a subscriber ornot. This great work, which has no parallel in anyother industry, is now approaching completion, andwill have cost £90,000 by the time the last orphanreaches the age limit.

In its other beneficent work the Corporation hasalways enjoyed the active support of the LondonSociety of Compositors. In addition to the personalcontributions of thousands of its members, either indirect subscription or through various Auxiliariesand Pension Associations, the Society as such hascontributed since 1906 no less a sum than £12,865,whilst the L.S.C. Pension Association, since its inception, has contributed £3,811.

During the last thirty years several prominentmembers of the London Society of Compositors haveoccupied official positions in the Corporation.Joseph Mortimer and William Christopher as Secretary and Collector respectively. C. J. Drummond,William Vandy, Tommy Scott, Bill Crespin, GeorgeTarns and Philip Evans have all in their turn servedon the Council, whilst our old friend <( G. W. B." hasfor many years acted, and still acts, as one of theTrade Auditors.

The story of the last thirty years is one of expansion,and if the Corporation is not yet able to do all that isrequired, it can truthfully be said that it is muchstronger to-day than it has ever been. Supportedby the generosity and loyalty of its many friends itfaces the future with the confident hope that it willbe able to meet all legitimate claims made upon it.

FIFTEEN YEARS OF STATEPRINTING

YIELDS A PROFIT OF ONE MILLIONPOUNDS

THE London Society of Compositors having co-operated with H.M. Stationery Office in the inauguration of the State Printing Works at Harrow, inthe year 1920, we need plead no excuse for includingthis highly successful enterprise in our review of theevents of our thirty years. We are indebted to anaddress recently given by the Controller of H.M.Stationery Office, Sir William R. Codling, C.B.,C.V.O., C.B.E., for the particulars which follow.

H.M. Stationery Office was established in theyear 1786 as the result of the passing of Burke'sAdministrative Reform Act of 1782. At the beginning of the eighteenth century, stationery was usuallysupplied by private individuals under patent fromthe Crown ; the last patent expired in 1800, and astime went on reforms and improvements were introduced. In 1807 it was first directed that all storesshould be purchased by public contract.

In 1824 the cumbersome system of dual accounting,by which all departments paid the Stationery Officefor their supplies, was abolished, and the StationeryOffice was granted a vote of its own for the supply of .stationery and printing to the public service. Thevote in 1824 was £59,760, and the staff of the department numbered 44. In 1935 the gross vote was£2,372,570, and the total staff employed was about3,000.

The headquarters are in London, with executivedivisions for each main class of work ; branch officesin Manchester, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast ;warehouses or other storing accommodation attachedto each office ; depots for the sale of official publications-two in London, one wholesale and oneretail, and one in each of the other four towns ; Stateprinting works.

The printing and binding section of the StationeryOffice is charged with the duty of obtaining allprinting and binding, including that of the Government publications, required for the public service.

A trading and profit-and-loss account and abalance sheet have to be produced every year, andthese are audited by the Comptroller and Auditor General and subjected to the criticism of the PublicAccounts Committee. The total saving to the State since the StationeryOffice Printing Works were inaugurated in 1920is over a million pounds.The works at Harrow were once in the possessionof David Allen and Sons, who gave place to Waterlowand Sons during the war, after which they wereacquired by the Stationery Office. A large branchestablishment, where the the "Parliamentary Debates"arc printed, is situated in Pocock Street, Southwark.
