HC Deb 23 April 1968 vol 763 c15W
Mr. Hooson

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what has been the total capital investment in the Forestry Commission since its inception; and what has been the Commission's profit.

Mr. Cledwyn Hughes

Up to 30th September, 1967, the capital investment was about£180 million, on which there is an accumulated interest charge of about£130 million. On the question of the return on this investment I would refer the hon. and learned Member to the profit and loss account appearing in the Commission's Annual Report for the year ended 30th September, 1966, and to the notes thereon on pages 11 to 13 of the Report.
