Vince Cable: New Forest must be protected

Date : 25th October 2010, Source : The Telegraph (UK)

Vince Cable has called for national treasures such as the New Forest to be protected after it emerged that the government was considering selling acres of woods as part of its austerity drive. Speaking outside a cottage in the New Forest owned by his wife, the Business Secretary said: "This is a national resource. There is absolutely no question of it being put in jeopardy." His comments came following reports that Ministers are considering selling off large swathes of publicly-owned forests in order to raise funds to help tackle the deficit.
