asked the Minister of Agriculture how many of the posts and signs of the Forestry Commission were erected on the Commission's property declaring it to be State property; what was the cost of these posts and signs, including cost of erection; on what date these signs and posts were replaced omitting the word State; and at what cost, and why, this change was made.

Some 2,200 forest name boards have been put up showing the name of the forest, at a total cost of approximately£7,000. In view of the public criticism of wording of the original name boards, the Commissioners decided in 1952 to use different wording for new notices and to replace existing notices as and when convenient. So far some 360 of the original notices have been replaced. at a total cost of£900.
