asked the Minister for the Civil Service what investigations have been carried out by HMSO into the possibility of providing House of Commons stationery and envelopes made wholly or partly with recycled paper.

It cannot however, recommend paper containing recycled fibre, partly because it is more difficult to die stamp satisfactorily and partly because it would cost more than the paper being recommended.
