HC Deb 19 November 1996 vol 285 c472W
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. [3120]

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.
