HC Deb 12 April 1938 vol 334 cc937-8
52. Mr. Graham White

(for Major Owen) asked the right hon. and gallant Member for Rye, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, whether it is the intention of the Commissioners to cut down the only remaining oak plantation in the Capel Curig district of Carnarvonshire; and whether he will first give an opportunity to the residents of the locality to put forward their objections to the destruction of this beauty spot?

Colonel Sir George Courthope (Forestry Commissioner)

The question presumably refers to Bryn Engan Wood, although it is not the only remaining oak wood in the Capel Curig district. There is no present intention of cutting down this wood. The only fellings have been thinnings made in the ordinary course of forestry. The latter part of the question does not, therefore, arise.
