HC Deb 15 July 1965 vol 716 c97W
43. Mr. Ronald Bell

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he has taken since 1st January last to increase the collection and repulping of waste paper in England and Wales.

Mr. Darling

The Board of Trade has discussed this problem with firms in the paper and board making industry and with other departments concerned. Following these discussions the Economic Development Committee for the Paper and Board industry has set up a working party comprising representatives of the industry, the waste paper merchants, local authorities, and Government Departments to investigate the amount of waste paper available and the best means of increasing supplies.
