Can't See the Wood for the Trees?
There is a discussion going on at present over whether our oldest nationalised industry - The Forestry Commission - should be dissolved and the woodlands sold to the private sector.
The last CEO of The Forestry Commission has just stated on Radio 4 that the annual cost of maintaining the national forests is £10m and the annual subsidy to private forestry owners is £36m.
I think this puts all the other arguments about access etc into the shade.
