HC Deb 01 August 1935 vol 304 c2846
43. Colonel ROPNER

asked the hon. and gallant Member for Rye, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, whether any records are being compiled of the effect on various kinds of trees of the severe May frosts; and, if so, will the co-operation of nurserymen and the owners of private woods be sought?

Colonel Sir GEORGE COURTHOPE (Forestry Commissioner)

A special investigation is being conducted into the damage caused on the operations of the Forestry Commission by the severe spring frosts, and the results will be published in due course. A good deal of information has also been received from private sources. Further data would be welcomed.
