§ 58. Colonel Crosthwaite-Eyre
asked the Minister of Agriculture for what reason it has been considered necessary to design a special flag for the Forestry Commission; how many such flags have been made; and on what occasions they are to be flown.
§ Mr. G. Brown
The main reason for designing a special flag for the Forestry Commission is that it will have a useful publicity value. One such flag has been made and an additional twelve, of smaller size, are on order. They will be flown from Government premises whenever appropriate.
§ Colonel Crosthwaite-Eyre
Can the hon. Gentleman tell us what is the publicity value of the Forestry Commission flying a flag, particularly in view of what my hon. Friend the Member for Banbury (Mr. Dodds-Parker) has just said about the flagpole? Would he consider at least flying this flag in a more populous place?
§ Captain Crookshank
Can the Minister say which came first, the flag in this Question or the pole in the previous Question?
