HC Deb 13 June 1950 vol 476 c11W
96. Wing-Commander Bullus

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the average monthly collection of waste paper from local authorities; and whether he is satisfied that the present amount collected is sufficient to maintain full stocks at the pulping factories.

Mr. Rhodes

I have no information about the current rate of local authorities' collections, but statistics from the mills indicate that with the present rate of consumption, receipts from all sources are insufficient to prevent a fall in the level of stocks held by mills. I hope that this situation will correct itself as the increased pressure of demand makes itself felt.
