star this property answer text <p>The total cost of production for issue 1 of the House of Lords Library Magazine <em>The Library</em> published in April was £2,642.50 plus VAT (template and printing). The magazine is available in print and digitally, and the cost of future issues will therefore depend upon the demand for printed copies. Likely subscriber numbers indicate a cost for printing of £185 plus VAT per issue, and it is expected that <em>The Library</em> will be published approximately nine times per year.</p> more like this
