HC Deb 20 June 1950 vol 476 cc106-7W
120. Mr. Wood

asked the Minister of Agriculture what quantity of timber is allotted by his Department for agricultural joinery; and what steps he will take to increase it.

Mr. G. Brown

It is not the practice to disclose the actual quantities of timber allocated for a particular purpose. As my hon. Friend said in his reply on 25th May, I regret that this Department's allocation of softwood for all agricultural purposes does not permit of any increase in the amounts now being allotted to agricultural joiners.
