HC Deb 26 April 1951 vol 487 c96W
86. Mr. Hurd

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will give an assurance that newspapers in this country will this year be allowed to purchase from the home mills at least as much newsprint as last year.

Mr. Bottomley

The newspapers will, I hope, receive as much newsprint from the home mills in 1951 as in 1950, but I can give no positive assurance of this as production is dependent on raw material supplies.
