Government U-turn.

Hurrah! The Herald has done it! Within 24 hours of your interviews with local on the forestry sell-offs, the Government had done another U-turn and called the whole thing off.

Well done to The Herald and readers who care; proof positive that your voice can count! I have just asked our MP Mr Neil Parish where was he?

I understand around one million people signed an online petition opposing any sale of forests.
