§ 88. Mr. Ian Harvey
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will give an indication of the present volume of the strategic reserve of softwoods; and what the Government propose to do with it.
§ Mr. P. Thorneycroft
No. It has never been the practice to disclose this type of information. As regards the second part of the Question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the Answer which I gave to the right hon. Member for Huyton (Mr. H. Wilson) on 2nd February.
