HL Deb 16 July 1981 vol 422 cc1482-3WA
Lord Sherfield

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will reply before the Summer Recess to the Second Report of the Select Committee on Science and Technology on the Scientific Aspects of Forestry, published on 10th December 1980.

The Minister of State, Scottish Office (The Earl of Mansfield)

It had been the Government's hope to reply to the Select Committee's Report before the Summer Recess, but consultations on a number of important points are not yet sufficiently advanced to make this now possible.
