If you want to read the full gory detail of the “debate” over OUR forests, here’s Hansard.
It’s disappointing that there’s no reaction on the 38 Degrees website. What do we do next?
I’m going to write a letter of protest to my MP.
It is also worth writing to crossbench members in the House of Lords, details on the Save Lakeland’s Forest website. This will give a chance to delay or amend the bill. I’m wondering whether to write to Lord Strathclyde, the current leader of the House of Lords.
Write to the The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Mrs Caroline Spelman) at DEFRA to protest: Defra, Nobel House, 17 Smith Square, London, SW1P 3JR.
Link to the Defra: consultation page on the forest sale. It has the details on how to make your feelings known and where to write to in the consultation process. I don’t seem to be on the list of consultees, must be an oversight.
It might also be worth writing to your local authority (local and county) as they appear to be part of the consultation process.
