HC Deb 07 July 1992 vol 211 c134W
Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how much paper, by volume and by cost, he estimates is used annually by his Department: what arrangements are made for its recycling: and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Hunt

My Department uses an estimated 360 tonnes of paper, with an estimated value of £293,000 per annum. All restricted waste and shredded confidential waste are collected for recycling into various kinds of tissue-type paper. For other types of waste paper, the Welsh Office is currently trialling a waste paper recycling scheme. If the trial is successful, the scheme will be extended throughout the Department.
