HC Deb 16 January 1945 vol 407 c42W
Mr. Jackson

asked the right hon. and gallant Member for Rye, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, what are the arrangements made for the disposal of timber in the plantations of the Commission.

Sir G. Courthope

Sales of timber are controlled by orders issued by the Ministry of Supply. Subject to these orders, with which the Commissioners conform, timber is disposed of in various ways. By far the greatest quantity is sold to the Ministry of Supply or to timber merchants and others approved by the Ministry. Local sales, usually of small material such as fencing stakes, are made through dealers or direct to consumers.
