HC Deb 12 June 1986 vol 99 c280W
25. Mr. Adley

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many officials in his Department are engaged in work relating to forestry.

Mrs. Fenner

No Ministry officials are wholly engaged on work relating to foresty, which is the responsibility of the Forestry Commission. But forestry and farm woodland issues are relevant to a number of areas of Ministry work. My officials accordingly maintain close links with their opposite numbers in the Forestry Commission.
