HC Deb 28 January 1947 vol 432 c162W
115. Mr. Watkins

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that a small tree, pyrus minima, found near Craig-y-Castell and Craig-y-Cilian, above Llangynidr, Breconshire, is in danger of being destroyed as the results of mortar practice; and if he will take steps to save this tree, the only one of its kind in this country and, possibly, the world.

Mr. Bellenger

The existence of this tree was only brought to my notice a few days ago. Instructions have been issued that the Craig, in which the tree is situated, is not to be used for mortar firing practice.
