HC Deb 20 November 1950 vol 481 cc12-3
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.
