I was actively involved in campaigning against the sale of our forests and I am very unhappy that the Government has not progressed the IPF recommendations . The answers to your specific questions are:

  1. Do you support legislation to set up the new Public Forest Estate Management Organisation and thereby safeguard our Public Forest Estate for future generations? - Yes
  2. Do you support funding of £22 million per annum (the IPF recommendation) to deliver wildlife and recreational benefits? - Yes
  3. Will you advocate this legislation and funding being included in the first session of the new parliament? - Yes

Your sincerely,

Sandra Walmsley

Green Party Candidate. South West Norfolk.
