To ask the Lord President of the Council if he will list each item of stationery issued by the Serjeant at Arms stores and the percentage content of recycled paper in each item of scale zero to 100 per cent.

[holding answer 14 May 1990]: A list of each item of stationery issued by the Serjeant at Arms stores is shown on the Members' stationery demands form. Currently the ruled writing paper contains 100 per cent. recycled paper and the buff envelopes and file covers contain at least 50 per cent. recycled paper. I understand that approval has now been given by the Accommodation and Administration Sub-Committee for a number of items, including printed memos, compliment slips and typing top sheets to be replaced by recycled ranges once existing stocks are exhausted and that orders should be placed on an experimental basis for a range of writing paper and envelopes in recycled paper to be available.
