HC Deb 28 November 1973 vol 865 cc175-6W
Mr. David Steel

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will consider making it necessary for the Forestry Commission to seek his approval before selling off forested land in those cases where it is intended to put it to any other use.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

No. These sales are conducted on my behalf by the Forestry Commission in accordance with rules common to all Government Departments.
