HC Deb 23 July 1929 vol 230 c1105W

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, the number of small holdings that have been constituted on land acquired by the Forestry Commissioners in Scotland; and how far it is intended, in the immediate future, to extend the policy of providing forest-holdings for those engaged in forestry work in Scotland?


I have been asked to reply. The Forestry Commissioners have completed 176 forest workers' holdings on land acquired by them in Scotland. An additional 30 are in progress, and recently directions were given for a further 23 to be proceeded with at once.
