Below is the reply recieved from Michael Jefferys, Labour's Parliamentary Candidate (West Suffolk Constituency), to the letter to the candidates in the constituencies in or around Thetford Forest Forest issued by the Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF):
I am a great supporter of Thetford Forest and indeed have a Discovery Pass for High Lodge. I am a keen walker and spend many hours walking the forest paths. Thetford Forest is a treasure that I greatly appreciate. As a consequence I am determined to support all strategies that will make our forests safe for our recreational use and as a nature reserve.
Therefore I can respond positively to each of your questions and if elected I would work tirelessly to protect Thetford Forest.
