The quota restriction on the consumption of paper has not hitherto been applied to periodicals relying on their own stocks, but it is being extended to them. The stocks of paper held by the larger publishers are known to the Paper Control. It would not be in the public interest to publish the figures. Information as to stocks held by printers and others outside the Control has not been collected, but the total quantity is estimated to be relatively small.
