Alex Fergusson raises a fair point. Natural flood management, which takes into account the impact of forestry, is central to the new flood risk management strategies that have been published. Certainly, that is the way forward in many parts of Scotland. The various stakeholders to which Alex Fergusson referred must be part of that process, and the way in which we engage with them is constantly being improved to ensure that we get the right flood mitigation measures in place.
