HC Deb 27 May 1946 vol 423 c128W
Mr. Bossom

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many wood-pulping factories exist in the British zone of occupation in Germany; and what is their monthly capacity

Mr. J. Hynd

There are 46 wood pulping mills in the British zone of Germany. Of these, 41 are at present in operation and the remaining five, which were damaged by air raids, are under repair. The capacity of the mills in production is 25,000 tons of pulp per month. No estimate of the capacity of the five damaged mills can be given until further repair work has been carried out.
