§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
asked the hon. and gallant Member for Rye, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, if he can give an estimate of the number of men to be employed on the work in connection with the forestry scheme in Devon and Cornwall; and whether the Commissioners will give priority to the claims of the unemployed in Devon and Cornwall in allotting the work to be done?
§ Sir G. COURTHOPE
It is estimated that the number employed by the Forestry Commission in Devon and Cornwall during the current season will range from a minimum of 58 to a maximum of 88. At present 71 are employed. Local labour only is being employed.
