HC Deb 03 June 1957 vol 571 c63W
58. Mr. F. M. Bennett

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will give details of the painting carried out on the exterior of The Lodge, Aberangell, by the Forestry Commission in 1943, 1949 and 1951, respectively.

Mr. Godber:

I apologise to my hon. Friend for misleading him in reply to his earlier Question. I understand now that he had in mind the colour-washing of the exterior walls, while I was thinking in terms of the painting of the woodwork. I find that the walls have not been colour-washed completely since 1930.

Details of the painting carried out in 1943 are not available. In 1949 the drive gates and curtain walls were painted and in 1951 all the exterior woodwork was painted.
