§ Captain Ramsay
asked the right hon. and gallant Member for Rye, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, whether they have taken advantage of the recent favourable weather to burn a protective belt at their plantations at Shielgreen, Peeblesshire.
§ Sir G. Courthope
Several areas at Shielgreen have been burned under suitable conditions. These areas include part of the North-West section of the boundary, but it has not yet been possible to carry out the burning arranged for the northern section owing to wind or other unfavourable conditions. This will be done as soon as conditions permit.
