HC Deb 23 January 1951 vol 483 c6W
85. Mr. C. I. Orr-Ewing

asked the President of the Board of Trade what plans he has for maintaining the supply of strawboard to the bookbinding industry.

Mr. Rhodes

So long as the demand for board exceeds the supply we are relying on the manufacturers and distributors to give preference to essential needs. We have particularly drawn their attention to the need to maintain reasonable supplies of strawboard to the book-binding industry. It is hoped that the position will improve as the waste paper salvage drive gets under way.
