I take this opportunity to pay tribute to my hon. Friend for all the work he did in this area as Minister.

We can do much better on managing woodland in this country and we are taking the steps that will enable us to do that so that it can be more productive, better for biodiversity and better for local economies too, through initiatives such as Grown in Britain.
