HC Deb 11 February 1946 vol 419 c13W
Mr. Orr-Ewing

asked the President of the Board of Trade to what extent the existing shortage of cardboard containers and cartons is due to the decline in the collection of salvage.

Sir S. Cripps

The production of board for boxes and cartons is to some extent curtailed by the shortage of waste paper, but output has been well maintained and the quantity available for civilian requirements has increased by approximately 125 per cent. in the past 12 months.
