HC Deb 07 December 1959 vol 615 c11W
95. Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he is yet in a position to give the result of trials of hardwood sleepers as arranged by the Forestry Commission.

Mr. John Hare

No. These trials have been arranged by the British Transport Commission in conjunction with the home timber trade. The Commission says that it will be some two or three years before it is possible to reach conclusions.
