asked the hon. and gallant Member for Rye, as representing the Forestry Commissioners whether he is aware that 62,182 acres of woodlands in Wales and Monmouthshire were felled or devastated during the War, and that only 15,824 acres have since been replanted by the Forestry Commission; will he state what proportion of the remaining acreage the Commission proposes to replant, and within what period of time; and will he particularly state what are the Commission's plans as regards the five counties of Anglesey, Cardigan, Denbigh, Flint and Pembroke, in which none of the area felled or devastated, amounting to 14,888 acres, has as yet been replanted by the Commission?

Lieut.-Colonel Sir GEORGE COURT-HOPE (FORESTRY COMMISSIONER):

I regret that some information which is necessary for a complete answer to the question has not yet come to hand, and I shall be glad if the hon. Baronet will repeat his question later.
