HC Deb 06 July 1953 vol 517 c54W
42. Mr. J. Morrison

asked the Minister of Materials when the report of the Committee on Consumption Licensing of Softwood will be completed.

Sir A. Salter

I hope to be able to give next week the result of the fresh assessment, upon which officials have been working with the assistance of the Timber Development Association, of the possible increase in softwood consumption which might result if the softwood licensing system were abolished.
