16. Mr. MACPHERSON
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, whether it is proposed to put into operation any new schemes of afforestation in Scotland; and, if so, will his Department take steps to secure that there will be no interference with the security of tenure of smallholders.
The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. W. R. Smith)
New schemes of afforestation will be put into operation as land is required, but there will be no interference with the security of tenure of smallholders.
