HC Deb 28 March 1946 vol 421 c84W
90. Fliģht-Lieutenant Haire

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether all emergency stocks of timber held by civil defence authorities have now been released to the Timber Control Board.

Mr. Ede:

Apart from timber now retained by local authorities for housing purposes, with the knowledge of the Timber Control Board, and timber embodied in shelters and other civil defence buildings, which is due to be removed so far as practicable as opportunity offers, I doubt whether local authorities now hold any appreciable quantities of timber obtained for civil defence purposes.
