§ 57. Mr. HAYDN JONES (for Major OWEN)
asked the hon. Member for Rye, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, whether his attention has been drawn to the petition submitted to the Forestry Commission by the inhabitants of Capel Curig protesting against the destruction of the sole remaining oak wood in the district; and what steps it is proposed to take to preserve the amenities of the neighbourhood?
§ Colonel Sir GEORGE COURTHOPE (Forestry Commissioner)
Such a petition has been received, but was obviously based on a misapprehension of the facts, because the destruction referred to was not contemplated. The second part of the question does not appear to arise.
