§ Mr. F. M. Bennett
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the total deficit incurred by the Forestry Commission, since its inception, met by Her Majesty's Government; and what has been the deficit in each year.
§ Mr. Scott-Hopkins
Grants-in-aid to the Forestry Commission since its inception in 1919 total £143 million. For the annual details I would refer my hon. Friend to the Commission's Annual Reports, the latest of which is available in the Vote Office today.
