HC Deb 07 November 1983 vol 48 cc38-9W
Mr. Chapman

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what plans his Department has made to celebrate and contribute to the Tree Council's annual national tree week from 19 to 27 November.

Mrs. Fenner

My Department attends meetings of the Tree Council as a consultative member and supports its aims. We have distributed literature on the national tree week to our local advisory officers, so that in their day-to-day contact with farmers they can draw attention to it where appropriate.

As part of national tree week, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, has provided a site for a group of native oaks to be planted at a ceremony by representatives of the London boroughs.
