Sir A. Bossom

asked the President of the Board of Trade the number of civil servants and other personnel now employed in connection with the paper control; and the annual charge to the nation.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

The Control of Paper (No. 29) Order, 1940, as amended, is maintained at present only for the purpose of controlling the delivery and use of newsprint. Eight officers are employed full-time by my Department on this work, at an annual cost of about £7.000.
