HC Deb 10 December 1941 vol 376 c1542W
Mr. Wakefield

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Supply whether he is aware that hospitals are still sending out circulars involving the expenditure of time, money and paper which could be used to better advantage in other ways; and what steps he is proposing to take to stop this misuse of effort during the war?

Mr. Harold Macmillan

The gratuitous distribution of advertising circulars by hospitals, as by other institutions, is limited by the Control of Paper (No. 36) Order to three-twentieths of the weight of advertising circulars so distributed by them in the corresponding three months of the pre-war year.
