HC Deb 07 July 1976 vol 914 c563W
Sir John Gilmour

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what stocks of forest tree seedlings now exist in Scotland in both Forestry Commission and privately-owned nurseries; and whether he is satisfied that adequate stocks of potential transplants are available to increase the present rate of tree planting.

Mr. Hugh D. Brown

As stocktaking in Forestry Commission nurseries does not take place until later in the year, the figures are not yet known but production has been planned to meet the Commission's planting programme. No information is available on stocks held by privately-owned tree nurseries in Scotland.
