§ Mr. JOEL
asked the hon. and gallant Member for Rye, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, the acreage of the woodland on which timber has been cut down for any purpose in each of the last two years; and what is the compensating amount of re-afforestation carried on in each of the same periods?
§ Sir G. COURTHOPE
The area of woodland cut by the Forestry Commissioners during 1932 was 495 acres, and during 1933 was 578 acres. The area planted by the Commissioners in those two years was 22,481 acres and 20,809 acres respectively.
