§ Dr. Roger Thomas
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what quantities of 2,4,5-T were applied to privately owned forested land in the United Kingdom during the year 1980.
§ Mr. Wiggin
The latest available data relate to the calendar year 1979 and were obtained during the special usage survey announced in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Melton (Mr. Latham) on 22 May 1980.—[Vol. 985, c. 267–68.] On the basis of information provided by the Great Britain forestry organisations, usage on privately owned forested land was estimated to account for approximately half of the 3 tonnes applied in the forestry sector as a whole.
