HC Deb 26 January 1987 vol 109 c123W
Mr. Gareth Wardell

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what use his Department makes of British made recycled paper for letterhead stationery and notepads.

Mr. Jopling

My Department, which obtains its supplies of stationery through Her Majesty's Stationery Office, does not use letterhead stationery and notepads made from recycled paper for reasons of financial economy. Recycled paper is significantly more expensive than paper of comparable quality made from new material.
