§ 67. Lieut.-Colonel Corbett
asked the Minister of Local Government and Planning what steps he has taken to stop land speculators buying properties in order to fell the timber and then resell the land.
§ Mr. Dalton
Felling which is injurious to amenity may be controlled by tree preservation orders, and I have confirmed many such orders by local authorities. In addition, all felling of any importance requires the licensing of the Forestry Commission.
