The fourth question is, that motion S3M-1008, in the name of Michael Russell, on the benefits of woodlands and green spaces, as amended, be agreed to.

Motion, as amended, agreed to.

Resolved,

That the Parliament recognises the value of the physical environment in promoting health and wellbeing; recognises the role that woodland and other greenspace plays in this through increased opportunities for physical activity, relaxation and social interaction in people's everyday lives, further recognises the economic significance of woodlands and the need to support the development and expansion of Scotland's commercial forestry sector and calls on the environmental and health sectors to work together to further develop the contribution of woodland and other greenspace to Scotland's health.
