HC Deb 01 July 1948 vol 452 c236W
Major Beamish

asked the President of the Board of Trade what quantities of newsprint are provided for "Roumanian News," published in English in this country by the Press Service of the Roumanian Legation, and the "New Central European Observer," published in English by the Czechoslovak Legation.

Mr. H. Wilson

Any person may publish a new periodical or newspaper which does not use more than 8 cwts. of paper in a four month's period, and I understand that these two publications have been issued under this arrangement. Applications to use larger amounts of paper are at present being considered by the Central Office of Information.
