§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what tonnage of waste paper is sold by the House of Commons authorities for pulping over any convenient period for which statistics are available; what money accrues therefrom to the Government; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
Waste paper for pulping or recyling is sold under a contract administered by Her Majesty's Stationery Office. The total weight of such waste paper from House of Commons during 1979 amounted to 230 tonnes, the revenue from which was £684. There is currently no intention to alter these arrangements.
