§ 72. Mr. Gallacher
asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the total amount of timber in stock in Scotland to the latest available date; how much timber has been or will be allocated to Scotland for all purposes during the first quarter of 1949; and whether the different purposes will be specified with the respective amount.
§ Mr. Bottomley
I give below the information asked for in the first part of the Question. It is not the practice to give details of timber allocations.
Following is the information:
Softwood 46,000 standards, Hardwood 1,800,000 cubic feet, Plywood 11,300,000 square feet, Pitwood 60,000 standards. These figures exclude sleepers, certain stocks held by railway companies, and stocks in consumers' hands.
