Below is the reply recieved from Peter Smith, Labour Party candidate (South West Norfolk), to the letter to the candidates in the constituencies in or around Thetford Forest Forest issued by the Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF):
Thanks for your emails. The answers to your three questions are yes, yes and yes! The Coalition's attempt to sell of Thetford and other national forests such as the Forest of Dean was rightly resisted, though I have no doubt that, if the worst came to the worst and the Tories were to be re-elected, they would revisit the sell-off again as they are ideologically committed to the selling off of all public 'assets'.
Keep up the good work. You have my full backing.
Labour, SW Norfolk
