HC Deb 25 April 1934 vol 288 c1716W

asked the hon. and gallant Member for Rye, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, the sales of produce, giving the details of the various kinds for each month in 1933 and from the various areas and centres under the control of the Commissioners?


It is not practicable to give details of the various kinds of produce sold each month at each of the areas and centres under the control of the Forestry Commissioners. During 1933 sales of forest produce totalled £40,000. Over 60 per cent., by value, of this produce was obtained from the New Forest and Forest of Dean and adjoining areas, the remainder being spread over most of the other forests (168 in all) listed in the Commissioners' 13th Annual Report. The produce consisted of timber sold, felled or standing, poles for transmission and other purposes, pitwood, sawn timber (sleepers, scantlings, etc.), and miscellaneous items such as fencing material and cordwood.
