HC Deb 16 July 1993 vol 228 cc721-2W
Sir David Steel

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what action has been taken by Her Majesty's Government in the light of the initiatives produced by the United Kingdom forest charter; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lang

The issues raised in the forest charter, a statement produced last November by the United Kingdom Forests Network, are being considered in the preparation of the United Kingdom's national plan for the implemtation of the forest principles agreed in Rio. The views of non-governmental organisations will be sought later this year before the plan is completed.
