HC Deb 30 April 1969 vol 782 c219W
28. Mr. Peter M. Jackson

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he proposes to take to decrease the current high rate of timber imports; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Dell

Imports of timber vary considerably from year to year in accordance with requirements. Processed wood is subject to the import deposit scheme and we see no case for additional constraints.
