§ Sir Sydney Chapman
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what plans he has to continue with initiatives encouraging tree planting in England. 
§ Mr. Boswell
We shall continue to encourage tree planting in England. As stated in our recent White paper "Rural England—A Nation Committed to a Living Countryside", we would like to see the area of woodland doubled over the next 50 years, subject to the necessary changes in the common agricultural policy.
