To ask the Lord President of the Council, pursuant to his answer of 23 May, Official Report, column 297, whether the items mentioned will be made from 100 per cent. recycled paper from low-grade paper waste; whether orders for the non-recycled versions have ceased; and when he expects present stocks to be exhausted.

I understand that the items mentioned will contain more than 50 per cent. pre-consumer recycled waste but will not be produced from recycled low-grade waste. Orders for the non-recycled versions have ceased and present stocks are likely to be exhausted by autumn this year.
