§ Mr. Touche
asked the President of the Board of Trade what proportion of the output of paper mills, whose production is being limited by a 50 per cent. allocation of coal, will be required for Government purposes; and if he will give an assurance that adequate supplies of paper will be available for business and commercial purposes.
§ Sir S. Cripps
The Stationery Office requirements for Government purposes in the current licensing period amount to approximately 5 per cent. of the total allocations of paper other than newsprint. I am not at present able to say how much paper will be available owing to the effects of the fuel cuts.
