HC Deb 11 February 1946 vol 419 c19W
Flight-Lieutenant Haire

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will state his future policy with regard to domestic salvage.

Sir S. Cripps

Yes, Sir. It is imperative in the interests of national economy that supplies of waste paper, rags, household bones and kitchen waste should be maintained and, where possible, increased. Accordingly, it is of the utmost importance that local authorities should continue to collect these materials regularly. I would appeal to all householders to assist in saving imports by making these materials available for collection in the greatest possible quantities.
