HC Deb 24 April 1963 vol 676 c34W
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.
