asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will urge county war agricultural committees to procure the co-operation of landowners in the collection of blown trees, wood chips and root stumps, in order to lessen the fuel scarcity in rural areas?

Mr. Hudson:

War agricultural executive committees are concentrating all their efforts on the production of food, and have neither the time nor the resources to undertake arrangements for the collection of wood fuel. I understand that the Ministry of Fuel and Power are organising a scheme for the collection of wood fuel throughout the country during the coming winter.
