HC Deb 03 February 1970 vol 795 cc67-8W
52. Mr. Wellbeloved

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what advice his Department has given to local authorities about the care and maintenance of trees for which they are responsible.

Mr. Skeffington

Local authorities have been advised to follow the appropriate British Standard. The Ministry's booklet "Trees in Town and City" also contains advice about the care and maintenance of trees. The booklet is being re-written and enlarged and will be re-issued.
