§ The following question, stood on the Order Paper in the name of Lieut.-Colonel A. MURRAY:
§ 23. To ask the Minister of Labour the nature of the 465 schemes approved by the Forestry Commission in connection with the relief of unemployment; and whether it is proposed to proceed with the schemes pending a decision upon the recommendaiton of the Geddes Committee that the scheme of afforestation by the State should be discontinued?990
Did not the right hon. Gentleman himself refer to these schemes in a speech which he made a short time ago?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
Certainly, but this is a matter which lies in the province of the Forestry Commission, and I understand that the Parliamentary Forestry Commissioner is responsible.
