HC Deb 10 May 1923 vol 163 c2573

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that the necessary authorisation has not been received to make payments for work done under the forestry unemployment grants scheme in Scotland; and, as this is causing inconvenience, will he have the authorisation issued at once?

Mr. FORESTIER-WALKER (Forestry Commissioner)

I have been asked to reply to this question. Payment of the grants referred to is subject to legislation. The Forestry (Transfer of Woods) Bill containing the necessary provision was read a Second time on the 7th instant.
