§ Mr. Alton
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether Her Majesty's Government will make arrangements for the specialist arboricultural knowledge of the Forestry Commission to be available to local authorities in Liverpool, particularly in respect of diseases attacking amenity trees in the area.
§ Mrs. Fenner
The Forestry Commission's advice is always available to local authorities on matters of this kind through the arboricultural advisory and information service which it runs on behalf of the Department of the Environment. This is based at the commission's research station at Alice Holt Lodge, Wrecclesham, Farnham, Surrey.
