HC Deb 16 November 1908 vol 196 c875
MR. LANE-FOX (Yorkshire, W.R., Barkston Ash)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board what other schemes of afforestation by the unemployed have been begun besides the Leeds scheme; whether they have been successful; and what reports as to the condition of the trees so planted have reached the Board.


The Leeds scheme is the only scheme of afforestation which has been carried out under the Unemployed Workmen Act, 1905.
