HC Deb 26 January 1987 vol 109 c11W
Mr. Gareth Wardell

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what use his Department makes of British made recycled paper for letterhead stationery and notepads.

Mrs. Rumbold

None at present. I understand that British-made recycled paper suitable for these purposes is available from Her Majesty's Stationery Office but that supplies are limited and prices uncompetitive compared with a suitable general purpose woodfree printing and writing quality paper. I understand further that Her Majesty's Stationery Office will continue to encourage the greater use of recycled fibre in the paper it purchases.
