HC Deb 09 February 1956 vol 548 c211W
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.
