HC Deb 31 October 1947 vol 443 c135W
Mr. J. Morrison

asked the President of the Board of Trade when the price scales for waste paper were last revised; whether he is satisfied that the present scales bear any relation to real values; and whether he will have re-examined all the restrictions and controls affecting the disposal of waste paper so as to make available for pulping the maximum amounts possible.

Mr. H. Wilson

A new Order amending certain of the waste paper prices came into force on 7th July, 1947. A control over waste paper is designed to secure that the maximum amount of waste paper is made available to re-pulping at reasonable and adequate prices. It is kept under constant review.
