The Forestry Commission publishes minutes and papers of the meetings of the Board of Forestry Commissioners on its website. Therefore, copies of all meeting minutes, including the meetings held on 16 June 2016, 15 December 2016, 28 September 2017 and 14 December 2017 are in the public domain, subject to any redactions of ‘official sensitive’ information or ‘business sensitive’ information which would be likely to prejudice the effective conduct of public affairs, as laid out in the Freedom of Information Act.

There is no plan to place copies of minutes of the Board of Forestry Commissioners in the library of the House.
