50. Mr. Watkins
asked the Minister of Agriculture how far his regulations permit farmers to buy forestry produce on 317W wholesale terms from the Forestry Commission.
§ Mr. G. Brown
Wholesale prices for forestry produce sold by the Forestry Commission are charged only to timber traders. Sales to farmers are at retail prices. If however the farmer calls for timber at the forest, and does his own haulage, he is charged the free-on-lorry wholesale price plus 25 per cent., and this is of course considerably lower than the delivered rate.
