§ Mr. Hare
During the three forest years which ended on 30th September, 1959, the non-industrial staff of the Forestry Commission increased from 2,571 to 2,649. Virtually all the additional staff were Foresters. They were required primarily to deal with an expansion of 15 per cent. in the land under plantations.
