Every man, woman and child in the country should be out opposing this sell-off.
I know, there will be assurances given about conservation, but this land will be sold off to "for profit" organisations who will want to make money
off the land.
The taxpayer owns that land and should have the ultimate say in any sell-off. Of course, what we think doesn't count for much, but mass protests
might help change some minds if the politicians supporting this see their own jobs on the line.
As I understanf it, this only applies to English forestries, not Scottish or welsh land. If so, it would also be interesting to see if any members of
those assembles are voting on handing over english forestries to private ownership!
