The Conservation subcommittee prepared, on behalf of Council, a statement on New Zealand Forest Service's proposals to utilise beech (Nothofagus spp.) forests in the South Island as set out in the White Paper "Utilisation of South Island beech forests" of October 1971. During preparation of the statement a working commit- committee tee of the Officials Committee for the Environment, which was set lip in October 1972 to examine these same proposals, published its report (Anonymous, 1973. "Utilisation of South Island beech forests: environmental impact report on proposals of Director-General of Forests"). Council's statement was recast in the light of this report.
