§ SIR THOMAS ESMONDE
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if the Government propose to take any steps towards the development of forestry in Ireland.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The Department of Agriculture has had under consideration for some time the question of assisting the development of forestry in Ireland. Investigations are still in progress, and the Department is not at present in a position to say definitely what measures it may recommend should be adopted.
§ * MR. FLYNN (Cork, N.)
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that a large number of county councils in Ireland are most anxious to co-operate in this direction?
