asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement about events and activities sponsored by his Department relating to National Tree Week from 29 November to 7 December.

One major event was the planting of the first trees following the Department's initiative on forestry in the Black Country. Other activities were organised by local authorities and various voluntary bodies with the Tree Council, which is supported by my Department.
