HC Deb 01 August 1961 vol 645 c1127
17. Mr. Hayman

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he will make a statement upon the working of the voluntary agreement betwen the Timber Growers' Association, the County Landowners' Association, the National Parks Commission and the Forestry Commission for the control of afforestation in the national parks.

Sir K. Joseph

There is little for me to report. The local discussions for which the agreement provides are taking place, with every indication that all concerned are willingly co-operating and making the scheme work.

Mr. Hayman

Will the Parliamentary Secretary say whether there is any hope of a reprieve for High House Moor from planting in this autumn?

Sir K. Joseph

I understand that an agreement has been made satisfactory to and with concessions from both sides.

Mr. C. Johnson

What steps are taken to give publicity to proposals arising out of agreements so that everyone concerned becomes aware of them?

Sir K. Joseph

After consultations, the maps will be made public.
