That this House supports efforts to increase the use of recycled materials; accordingly supports the Recycled Content of Newsprint Bill, introduced by a cross-party group of honourable Members on 5th March, which will require newspaper publishers to use 65 per cent of recycled materials by 2003, 70 per cent by 2006 and 80 per cent by 2010; and believes that this will create thousands of new jobs and so have social and economic benefits, as well as environmental benefits.
