§ 65. Mr. Wingfield Digby
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the total Government expenditure on woodland establishment and management techniques.
§ Mr. Scott-Hopkins
Virtually the whole of the Forestry Commission's expenditure on research and the study of management problems, which in the last forest year amounted to £446,000, is a fair charge to these objects. To this should be added its expenditure on work study which was in the region of £27,000. The results of nearly all this work are equally applicable to private woodlands as well as to the Forestry Commission's own forests.
