asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they envisage that, following devolution, there will be a Secretary of State for Scotland in the Cabinet; and, if not, who they envisage will take the 117WA lead in matters affecting forestry in the United Kingdom as a whole.
§ Lord Sewel
My right honourable friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and other forestry Ministers are considering the treatment of forestry matters, both in Scotland and in the United Kingdom as a whole, in the context of the Government's proposals for a Scottish parliament. The Government's proposals will be set out in the forthcoming White Paper.
