asked the Minister of Agriculture how many times the Advisory Committee on the Utilisation of Home-Grown Timber has met since 1st January, 1954, when it proposes to meet next; and whether any report of its proceedings has been published this yew.

The committee has not met this year, but work on research projects initiated by the committee has continued throughout the year; progress will be reported at the next meeting in October. Studies undertaken by a committee of this nature call for very detailed investigation, and frequent reports on progress serve no useful purpose. Proceedings of the committee are not published, but reports on special investigations made under its direction are published by the Forestry Commission.
