asked the Minister of Agriculture how many forest or waste lands over 100 acres in extent there are belonging to the Crown to which the Act 1 and 2 William IV, cap. 59, applies; and will he set out their names and the places where they exist?
Particulars of the forests or waste lands belonging to the Crown cannot very well be given within the limits of an answer. I refer the hon. Member to the following Parliamentary Papers, namely, House of Commons No. 8 (1912) and Command No. 7488 (1914), copies of which I am sending to him. The application of the Act 1 and 2 William IV, cap. 59, to the forests or waste lands referred to in such Papers is a matter of controversy.
