HC Deb 04 July 1950 vol 477 c17W
67. Mr. John Rodgers

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is yet in a position to make a statement on the imports of newsprint from Canada for 1951.

Mr. Bottomley

As my right hon. Friend announced on 29th June in reply to a Question by my hon. Friend, the Member for Bristol, Central (Mr. Awbery), we are authorising the provision of dollars for the importation of 37,500 tons of Canadian newsprint during the first half of 1951. No decision has yet been taken about the second half year.
