HC Deb 06 July 1932 vol 268 c433
40. Major MILLS

asked the hon. and gallant Member for Rye, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, whether the Commission is adhering to its decision not to allow the grid to traverse the New Forest; and if he can give an undertaking that the question will not be reopened by the Commission?

Colonel Sir GEORGE COURTHOPE (Forestry Commissioner)

The Forestry Commissioners are adhering to their decision not to allow the suggested grid line to traverse the New Forest, and consequently, while the question of reopening the matter does not rest with them alone, they will not take the initiative.
