§ Mr. A. Edwards
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether, instead of burning the large quantities of departmental papers, he will arrange for them to be utilised for pulping?
§ Captain Crookshank
The existing practice is to pulp all departmental waste papers, excepting a comparatively small proportion consisting of secret documents, which is burned. Steps have already been taken, however, to investigate the possibility of disposing under proper safeguards of these latter documents by pulping instead of burning.
