asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the circulation in this country of catalogues by Dutch bulb growers, he will rescind the order prohibiting English bulb growers from issuing and circulating catalogues.
I regret that the paper supply position does not at present permit the unrestricted distribution of advertising circulars. Under the Control of Paper (No. 70) Order, 1945, which has just been issued, however, advertising catalogues relating to bulbs may now be gratuitously distributed in each three months period to the extent of 20 per cent. of the amount so distrsibuted in the corresponding period in the pre-war year. Any circulars distributed in excess of this quantity must be paid for by the recipient.
