§ 88. Mr. Wingfield Digby
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many extra plants are being made available by the Forestry Commission to private owners in the coming winter, to reduce the shortage of plants and so encourage as much planting as possible.
§ Mr. Godber
As stocktaking on forest tree nurseries is not carried out until the end of the growing season, it will not be possible to say until about the end of October how many plants in Forestry Commission nurseries will be surplus to requirements and available for private woodland use during the coming winter.
