HC Deb 19 June 1956 vol 554 c77W
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.
