HC Deb 19 June 1958 vol 589 c98W
20. Mr. Sorensen

asked the President of the Board of Trade to what extent the need now exists for the salvage of waste paper not only by businesses and local authorities but also by householders; and what recommendations for wastepaper salvage have been sent to local authorities.

Sir D. Eccles

There is still a demand for waste paper which can be collected and used economically. Local authorities decide how far to encourage householders to collect paper for salvage. Local authorities and the mills consult about the level of supply, and I understand that paper mills in certain areas have recently been able to increase their purchases from local authorities.
