Express your views on the UK timber industry, managing impacts of deer in England and land reform in Scotland



How can we grow the UK timber industry and reduce global deforestation?

The Environmental Audit Committee is seeking views on the sustainability of the UK’s timber industry and its links with imports of key commodities and global deforestation. This is a real chance to influence how we keep up with the skyrocketing demand for timber, meet our net zero ambitions and avoid offshoring our problems to the rest of the world.

We will be submitting evidence and we urge members to send us comments by 2 September to help shape our response. Please send your comments to our Head of Policy & Partnerships, Jemima Cooper.

We would also encourage members to respond to the inquiry directly which you can do so here.



There are two other consultations we encourage you to respond to:

Deer Management Strategy Proposals

Deadline: 2 September

This strategy aims to ensure the sustainable management of the English deer population and a reduction of the impacts of deer on the natural environment.



Land Reform in a Net Zero Nation

Deadline: 25 September

This consultation sets out the Scottish Government’s proposals for the next Land Reform Bill and seeks views on a range of land-related issues.




For all of these consultations and to read our past responses, visit our Consulations & Position Papers page.
