18. Mrs. WARD
asked the hon. and gallant Member for Rye, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, whether the Forestry Commission have any land for planting on Cannock Chase; and whether, having regard to the local demand for timber for pit-wood and the available supply of local unemployed for the work, they will undertake planting in the immediate future?
§ Colonel Sir GEORGE COURTHOPE (Forestry Commissioner)
The Forestry Commission still have land for planting on Cannock Chase, and will plant a further 160 acres next season.
