HC Deb 27 March 1917 vol 92 c205
39. Mr. G. LAMBERT

asked the Minister of Munitions if instructions will be issued to timber fellers and merchants that oak bark should this season be stripped, thus utilising the home-grown article and minimising the use of foreign imported material for tanning purposes?


The importance of collecting oak bark is fully realised, and collection will be made as far as conditions permit.
