§ 12. Mr. Chapman
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what initiatives he proposes to take to encourage tree planting in the Principality.
§ Mr. Grist
My hon. Friend will know that it was my right hon. Friend who launched the "Plant a Tree in '73" campaign which was the initiative of my hon. Friend, so he will know my right hon. Friend's support for tree planting. There are a range of measures we are taking in Wales; the valleys initiative, urban programme, forestry commission grant schemes, proposed farm woodland scheme and Coed Cymru—Save Welsh Wildwoods—all promote amenity or commercial tree planting and/or conservation of existing woodlands.
