HC Deb 16 March 1943 vol 387 c1059W
Mr. Riley

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether manufacturers, having in their possession previously used cardboard, can be permitted to make from such cardboard cheap toys, over and above permitted quota under existing regulations, providing that no additional labour is employed in their manufacture?

Mr. Dalton

No, Sir. Previously used cardboard can, of course, be used for manufacturing toys. But I cannot agree that toys made from such material should not be included in the permitted quota. The object of the Limitation of Supplies Order is to save material, as well as labour, for essential war purposes.
