HC Deb 08 August 1940 vol 364 c453W
Mr. Gledhill

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether the limitation of paper supplies to one-third of normal is applicable to all Government Departments?

I can assure the hon. Member, however, that the paper requirements of Departments are being specially scrutinised with the object of securing the maximum possible reduction in all cases.
