HC Deb 21 July 1949 vol 467 c74W
61. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the President of the Board of Trade what new action he is taking to encourage the collection of waste paper in view of the recent 25 per cent. cut in imports of newsprint from hard currency areas.

Mr. H. Wilson

No decision about the level of newsprint imports from dollar sources has yet been taken, but I hope that any reduction which may be necessary can be made good by increased home production, possibly supplemented by imports from other areas. This will not, however, entail any particular increase in waste paper consumption.
