HC Deb 19 May 1927 vol 206 cc1356-7
41. Colonel Day

asked the hon. Member for Monmouth, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, whether any notices have been issued by the Forestry Commission drawing attention to the fact that when wild flowers are picked young forest trees are frequently pulled up or broken; if so, to whom these notices have been issued; and what publicity has been given to these notices?

Sir LEOLIN FORESTIER-WALKER (Forestry Commissioner)

The Forestry Commission have asked the Automobile Association to draw the attention of their members to the fact that, when picking wild flowers, individuals sometimes thoughtlessly pull up or break off young forest trees without realising that they are destroying plants. No other notices on the subject have been issued.

Colonel DAY

Cannot notices also be posted on the lands affected?


We can only deal with our own forest areas.

Colonel DAY

Could not notices be printed in bold type so that people might read them?
