§ Mrs. Winifred Ewing
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what recent representations he has received from the Ramblers Association and the Council for the Protection of Rural England regarding the operation and administration of the Forestry Commission; and what replies he has sent.
§ Mr. Peart
The representations that I have received from the Ramblers' Association and the Council for the Protection of Rural England drew attention to the amenity rôle of the Forestry Commission and the advisability of taking this factor into account in the appointment of a successor to Lord Taylor as Chairman. I have taken note of their representations.
