§ Sir W. Jenkins
asked the right hon. Member for Rye, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, whether he will state the number of acquisitions made by the Commissioners in the county of Glamorgan during the last three years; the acreage of land acquired and where these units are situated; what number of men are employed now; what number are likely to be employed; and what is the proposed acreage to be planted each year?
§ Sir G. Courthope
The number of acquisitions completed by the Forestry Commissioners in the county of Glamorgan during the last three years was three. The acreage of land in those three acquisitions is 727. One of these acquisitions is at Tair Onen, the other two are additions to the unit at Rheola. The number of persons now employed in the county is 138 while the number which will be employed and the acreage which will be planted each year will depend on the extent of the additional land to be acquired during this and future years.
