HC Deb 25 July 1955 vol 544 cc804-5
5. Mr. Speir

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how far it is the practice of the Forestry Commission to provide a free issue of dustbins for use by their tenants.

Mr. Amory

Practice hitherto has varied, but dustbins are now to be provided free for all tenants of Forestry Commission houses where there is an organised collection of refuse.

Mr. Speir

May I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply?

Mr. Shinwell

Does the Minister not think that this was a silly Question to put down and with which to take up the time of the House?
