HC Deb 24 September 1948 vol 456 cc186-7W
Mr. J. Morrison

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he now considers that wire available for private foresters will suffice for 20,000 acres as forecast in his answer to the hon. and gallant Member for East Grinstead (Colonel Clarke) on 30th July, 1948.

Mr. T. Wllliams

The quantity of fencing wire so far licensed to private foresters will suffice for more than 15,000 acres, and if necessary I hope that enough could be made available for 20,000 acres.
