HC Deb 15 June 1910 vol 17 cc1307-8

asked whether it was proposed, in accordance with previous practice and custom, to appoint local Commissioners to formally authorise the contemplated further inclosures of Crown land for the purpose of making new timber plantations in the Forest of Dean, or whether His Majesty's Commissioners of Woods proposed henceforth to inclose lands hitherto uninclosed up to the legal limit of 11,000 acres without any such authority?


It is not intended to make any new inclosures or new plantations, but it is proposed to reinclose existing plantations which have been thrown open in time past until the legal limit of 11,000 acres is reached; and as soon as the actual measurement of the areas to be reinclosed has been ascertained Local Commissioners will be appointed in the usual way for the purpose of authorising the reinclosures.
