56. Mr. John Wells

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what applications he has had from the paper industry and the paper processing industry for price increases under the Counter-Inflation (Temporary Provisions) Act to make provision for cover against Scandinavian raw material price increases due to the floating of the £ sterling and other causes.

Mr. Tom Boardman

Nine applications have been received from paper manufacturers and 12 applications from paper processors. These are being considered by my Department.
