HC Deb 18 July 1944 vol 402 cc36-7W
Mr. Gledhill

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the shortage of books for schools and technical purposes; and whether he will consider a more adequate supply of paper for these publications.

Mr. Dalton

Owing to the shortage of paper the supply available for books is strictly limited. But I am doing my best to give educational books a substan- tial share of the reserve of paper at my disposal, and I am keeping in close touch with my right hon. Friend, the President of the Board of Education, on this question.
