HC Deb 30 January 1951 vol 483 c95W
82. Mr. Frederic Harris

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will consider re-imposing allocations control of board to essential users in view of the concern felt with regard to future supplies.

Mr. Rhodes

As my right hon. Friend stated in the debate on paper supplies on 24th November last, he has arranged with the paper and board trade for the operation of a voluntary system of priorities. He is waiting to see the results of this before deciding whether or not the re-imposition of statutory control is necessary.
