S5W-18482: David Stewart (Highlands and Islands)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 30 August 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has to mark the centenary of the Forestry Commission in 2019.

Answered by: Fergus Ewing 28 September 2018

2019 will be a very significant year for forestry in Scotland. We will complete the devolution of forestry to Scotland, and will recognise the many and varied achievements of the forestry sector in the 100 years since the introduction of the 1919 Forestry Act, which included the establishment of the Forestry Commission.
