§ Mr. Heathcoat Amory
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is satisfied that the best use is being made of home-grown woodland thinnings, with a view to savings of imported timber.
§ Mr. H. Wilson
The use of home-grown thinnings undoubtedly saves imports. They are at present used for pitprops and, to a limited extent, for pulping; the greater proportion of our supplies of pitwood, pulpwood and woodpulp however, still comes from abroad.
