HC Deb 18 March 1948 vol 448 c269W
89. Mr. Digby

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the total amount of paper made available to merchants and printers at the present moment as compared with the amount used in 1939.

Mr. H. Wilson

Licences for the delivery of paper are in general granted for particular uses, and details of the amounts supplied through merchants or printers are not therefore readily available. Figures of the amounts obtained through merchants and printers in 1939 are not available.
