HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 cc208-9W
Earl of Dalkeith

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the present total acreage of land in Scotland in forestry use; and how much of this figure is officially described as being in full productive use.

Mr. Ross

At 30th September, 1965, the estimated area of land in forestry use in Scotland was about 1,400,000 acres, of which about 450,000 acres were fully productive in the sense of being mature enough to produce saleable material.
