§ 86. Mr. C. DUNCAN
asked the Post master-General whether, in view of the Post Office statement that the Department requires many thousands of wooden poles per year, and that the wood best suited for the purpose is red fir and larch, and that private enterprise has failed to supply the material, he will consider the advisability of the Post Office purchasing land and growing its own wood?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
I am obliged to the hon. Member for his suggestion, but the question of forestry comes under the control of the President of the Board of Agriculture.
