HC Deb 20 November 1950 vol 481 c22W
Mr. Hurd

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations if he has consulted the Government of New Zealand with a view to co-operation between the United Kingdom and the Dominion in the large scale development of newsprint supplies from forests in the North Island, to the mutual advantage of both countries; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gordon-Walker

No, although I understand that the New Zealand Government have under consideration a project for the development of newsprint in the North Island. Any increase in the production of newsprint within the Commonwealth would be welcome.
