HC Deb 03 December 1951 vol 494 c203W
106. Mr. Shackleton

asked the Secretary for Overseas Trade, as representing the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, how much additional newsprint was allowed to the newspapers for use in connection with the 1951 General Election; and, if, in future, he will ensure that such special issues are used only for the purposes intended.

Mr. H. Strauss
