PA­PER TO BE CON­TROLLED: TERMS OF NEW OR­DER

THE use of all pa­per is rigidly con­trolled un­der the Or­der re­cently gazetted.

There are no pa­per mills in the Colony and the Union mills on which the Colony de­pends for cer­tain of its sup­plies are ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing only a small pro­por­tion of the Union’s to­tal re­quire­ments.

Ship­ping dif­fi­cul­ties make the im­por­ta­tion of pa­per from over­seas dif­fi­cult and un­cer­tain.

It is there­fore nec­es­sary to re­strict the use of pa­per to es­sen­tial re­quire­ments and to en­deav­our to make ex­ist­ing and avail­able stocks last as long as pos­si­ble.

A Pa­per Con­trol Or­der has re­cently been pub­lished in the Union and the Colony’s Or­der is largely based on it, since co- or­di­na­tion of pol­icy and be­tween the two ter­ri­to­ries is nec­es­sary to con­serve this vi­tal com­mod­ity.
