HC Deb 20 January 1949 vol 460 c320
30. Mr. John E. Haire

asked the President of the Board of Trade the annual profits made by the Timber Control up to the latest available date.

Mr. H. Wilson

My hon. Friend will find the latest available information on this subject in the "Trading Accounts and Balance Sheets, 1946–47" (House of Commons Paper No. 34 of 1947–48).

Mr. Haire

Would not my right hon. Friend agree that the profits enjoyed by the Timber Control are, at least, partly responsible for the present high price of timber?

Mr. Wilson

No, Sir.
