HC Deb 09 May 1950 vol 475 c43W
82. Mr. Haire

asked the President of the Board of Trade what Colonial hard woods are proving most popular in this country; in what quantities; and for what purposes.

Mr. Rhodes

Since the import of hardwood, and the distribution of nearly all of it, is no longer controlled, I am afraid that I have no information as to which kinds of Colonial hardwood are proving most popular, or for what purposes. If my hon. Friend wishes to know whether any particular type or types of hardwood are being more widely used, I will try to find out for him.
