§ 24. Helen Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what action he is taking to encourage companies to participate in community forest schemes; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Meacher
This is for the Community Forest teams, who I am pleased to say are succeeding in attracting an increasing amount of support from the business community. The £7.7 million of support received in 1997–98 represented a 400 per cent. increase on the level in 1994–95.
