§ Mr. Driberg
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what weight of waste paper is accumulated on an average sitting day of the House; how it is disposed of; and what is the quantity disposed of annually, and the revenue derived therefrom.
§ Mr. Rippon
On an average sitting day, about 8 cwt. of non-confidential waste paper is accumulated. About 85 tons are disposed of annually under a contract let by Her Majesty's Stationery Office by competitive tender. The revenue derived from disposal has always been confidential for commercial reasons.
