Earlier today on Prime Minister’s Question Time, David Cameron was asked by Labour Leader Ed Miliband about his views on the public forest sale.

Ed Miliband asked if the PM was happy about his “flagship policy on forestry”.

Amidst laughs, Mr Cameron replied that the short answer was “no” adding that, whatever happens, access to woodland should increase and biodiversity should be aided.

“Will the PM drop the policy of flogging forests?”, Mr Miliband asked.  Mr Cameron replied that the government is consulting and that a public consultation was not a “complicated” idea.
