HL Deb 23 January 1991 vol 525 cc5-6WA
Baroness Faithfull

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the UK imports recycled paper or paper for recycling because it is cheaper than home-produced paper.

Lord Hesketh

Both recycled paper and paper for recycling are imported to, and indeed exported from, the UK. The reason why any particular transaction takes place is decided by the participants.
