HC Deb 13 November 1952 vol 507 c1116
40. Mr. Hurd

asked the Secretary for Overseas Trade, as representing the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, if he will remove the ban on the use of printed contents bills by newspapers.

Mr. Mackeson

No. My noble Friend does not consider that the supply position justifies the removal at present of this restriction on the use of newsprint.

Mr. Hurd

Can my hon. Friend tell us what saving of paper is, in fact, effected by having these rather smudgy contents bills instead of decently printed ones?

Mr. Mackeson

Not without notice.
