WRITTEN ANSWERS. - REPLANTING OF FOREST TREES IN CHARLESTOWN, CO. MAYO.

asked the Minister for Fisheries when he may be able to have the replanting of forest trees taken in hand in the townlands of Tavnynah and Barnalyra, Charlestown, County Mayo, containing about 50 acres; if he is aware that the trees on these woods have been cut down, destroyed and taken away, and that no replacement has been made up to the present; and that the replanting of the area would give helpful employment in that thickly-populated district with holdings of an average of three pounds valuation.

The Land Commission is not in a position to undertake the replanting of the woods referred to.
