asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Colonial Products Research Council will consider the timber resources of British Guiana for manufacturing purposes and as wood pulp in view of the need to develop this important source of wealth for the benefit of the Colony?

It has been decided that for the present the Colonial Products Research Council will not deal with timber matters, since adequate research facilities are already available for this purpose. The particular question of woodpulp in British Guiana is in any event not a matter involving scientific research but rather one requiring investigation of manufacturing technique and of comparative costs of production.
