§ 4. Wing Commander Bullus
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what is the annual consumption of paper in his Department.
§ Mr. P. Noel-Baker
Six hundred and fifty tons of paper were used by my Ministry in 1949. Since then, the consumption has been reduced by the de-rationing of petrol, but I regret that I have no figure for the total amount that will be used this year.
§ Wing Commander Bullus
What steps is the right hon. Gentleman taking to eliminate waste by duplication, examples of which I have brought to his notice?
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
I am much obliged to the hon. and gallant Gentleman for having called my attention to the duplicated circulation of a paper about economy in laundries. I have taken steps to see that it shall not be repeated.
