The right hon. Member for Argyll skated over the grants which are given for planting and replanting of trees, the management grants and the dedication schemes, some of which he was responsible for. At least, he had the job of administering them. Of course, the level of grants for planting and replanting is reviewed at least every three years under this legislation. The last review having been made in 1964, all this has to be reviewed next year. This is one of the points which was in our minds when we suggested that, under other legislation, some of the matters raised by hon. Members might receive the favourable consideration for which they are asking, but I can give no undertakings.
