§ Mr. JOEL
asked the hon. and gallant Member for the Rye Division of Sussex 2244W as representing the Forestry Commissioners, whether, in view of the destruction of surplus nursery stocks which landowners and trade nurserymen do not need for their own requirements, he will consider enabling local authorities to obtain some of these surplus stocks for such purposes as the planting of slag heaps in the Black Country?
§ Sir G. COURTHOPE
The Forestry Commissioners' surplus plants are conifers, which are unsuitable for planting on slag heaps in the Black Country.
