HC Deb 18 March 1952 vol 497 c201W
Mr. Smithers

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that the annual report of the Nyasaland Forestry Department for 1950, reveals that a satisfactory forest policy could not be carried into effect because of lack of staff; and whether this state of affairs has now been rectified.

Mr. Lyffelton

The position is now much improved, four out of five vacancies for assistant conservators having been filled during the past twelve months.
