§ 47. Mr. WELLOCK
asked the hon. And gallant Member for Rye, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, what is the maximum acreage for which the Commissioners could provide or procure transplants for afforestation during each of the next six years; and how long it would take to provide transplants for planting a programme of 100,000 acres a year?
§ Colonel Sir GEORGE COURTHOPE (Forestry Commissioner)
It is estimated that the maximum acreage for which the Forestry Commission could provide or procure transplants for afforestation during each of the next three seasons would be 30,000 acres. Thereafter transplants for a planting programme of 100,000 acres per year could be provided if funds were available this year for the additional nursery ground, etc.
