§ 23. Mr. Partridge
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that Her Majesty's Stationery Office paper has recently been on sale at a bargain price in a Battersea shop; and what is the policy of Her Majesty's Stationery Office in disposing of paper.
§ Mr. H. Brooke
On the few occasions when H.M. Stationery Office has had surplus paper for disposal it has been sold by competitive tender. A sample of the paper referred to by my hon. Friend indicates that it was part of a surplus of wartime substitute paper of very low quality which was disposed of by the Stationery Office in 1948.
