§ Mr. PARKINSON
asked the hon. Member for the Rye Division, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, why the forestry holdings are put on the lightest and more sandy soils in the Thetford, Norfolk, area, and the better land reserved for the Commissioners' planting areas?
§ Sir G. COURTHOPE
The actual procedure is the reverse of that stated by the hon. Member; in general the best land is devoted to holdings and the poorer (generally the lightest and most sandy soils) is planted with trees.
