§ 35. Mr. Watkinson
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what percentage of current nationally-consumed timber is produced domestically; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Strang
About 8 per cent. of timber and timber products, including newsprint and paper, is home grown, and on present assumptions this is expected to rise to about 11 per cent. by the turn of the century.
