Defra to consult over selling Forestry land in England

Date : 29th October 2010, Source : BBC Link to News Story

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has told MPs it plans to hold a consultation on selling parts of Forestry Commission land in England. The Forestry Commission's estate covers 18% of England's wooded areas, some of which provides domestic timber. Defra said the government has "reiterated its firm commitment to biodiversity and other public benefits which forests and woodland provide". And it said it would consult the public on its proposals later this year.
