HC Deb 13 June 1995 vol 261 c472W
Mr. Tipping

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list by(a) parliamentary constituency and (b) county or Scottish region all woodlands currently owned by the Forestry Commission, giving their name, location, hectarage and indicating whether they are leasehold or freehold and their market value. [27332]

Sir Hector Monro

Lists of all Forestry Commission woodlands, both by parliamentary constituency and by county or Scottish region, were placed in the Library of the House in 1994. A list of woodlands sold by the commission in 1994 is also held in the Library. These lists give the name, location and size of each woodland.

It is not possible to include the legal status of individual woodlands on the lists because the woodlands often consist of land acquired under several titles, which may be both freehold and leasehold. The commission does not estimate market values for individual woodlands unless they are to be sold.
