That this House supports efforts to increase the use of recycled materials; accordingly supports the Recycled Content of Newsprint Bill, introduced in the last session of Parliament by a cross-party group of honourable Members on 25th March, which would require newspaper publishers to use 65 per cent. of recycled newsprint by 2003, 70 per cent. by 2006 and 80 per cent. by 2010; notes that the Bill would require newspaper and magazine publishers to ensure that 39 per cent. of the volume of the papers they place on the market are collected and recycled by 2003, 45 per cent. by 2006, 50 per cent. by 2010 and 65 per cent. by 2016; notes also that the Bill would require newspaper publishers to ensure their newspapers state the percentage of recycled content of their newsprint as an average over the previous three months; and believes that this Bill will create thousands of new jobs and so have social and economic benefits, as well as environmental benefits; and finally notes the very high level of support this Bill received from honourable Members, 317 of whom signed a supportive Early Day Motion in the last session, and therefore hopes that time may be found for such a Bill to become law in this session.
