HC Deb 11 February 1999 vol 325 c367W
Sir Robert Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what the Scottish Office guidelines are for commercial non-timber activities on Forestry Commission land. [69071]

Mr. Macdonald

The Forestry Commission's estate provides many opportunities for generating income from sources other than the production of timber. Ministers expect the Commission to maximise the return from its assets as long as this does not compromise its environmental and social objectives.
