HC Deb 13 February 1985 vol 73 cc209-10W
Mr. Cartwright

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list the proportions of land bought from the Forestry Commission since the passing of the Forestry Act 1981 by category of purchaser.

Mr. John MacKay

The Forestry Commission does not maintain central records that carry this information, which could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.

Mr. Donald Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when the Forestry Commission expects to report on the survey on the health of Norway spruce, Sitka spruce and Scots pine in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Younger

The Forestry Commission expects to be able to report the results of this survey by the middle of next month.
