asked the President of the Board of Trade the average monthly tonnage of waste paper now being imported into this country

Separate particulars of the imports of waste paper are not recorded in the trade and navigation accounts, but no licences have been issued for such imports this year.

Is the President of the Board of Trade satisfied with the effectiveness of the arrangements for the collection of waste paper in this country?

They are as effective as we can make them. Everything possible is being done to try to get local authorities to perfect those arrangements.

Would the right hon. and learned Gentleman send somebody to collect my old HANSARDS.
