HC Deb 11 April 1945 vol 409 c1823
50. Mr. Graham White

asked the Ministeh of Supply if there has been any improvement in the rate of collection of paper salvage.

The Minister of Supply (Sir Andrew Duncan)

Yes, Sir. There has recently been an appreciable improvement. More waste paper is, however, urgently needed; and I hope that, in spite of labour difficulties, still larger quantities will be obtained, with the aid of the drives that have been planned.

Mr. White

Is the right hon. Gentleman taking any action to bring home to local authorities and the public the continuing and urgent need for the maximum collection?

Sir A. Duncan

We have regular conferences with local authorities on the subject.
