asked the Secretary of State for War why timber and packing cases are burnt in huge bonfires at the central ordnance depot, Sinfin Lane, Derby, when there is such a shortage of this material and local residents would welcome the opportunity of purchasing it.

My hon. Friend appears to have been misinformed. No timber or packing cases are burnt at this depot The only, materials burnt are floor sweepings and packing materials other than wood, which are unsuitable for domestic use or any other purpose
