Mary Creagh MP, Labour's Shadow Environment Secretary, commenting on reports, that the Government has put forest sales on hold, said:

"This is a panic measure by a Government which has been spooked by the huge public outcry

"This partial U-turn will not be enough to silence the protests

"This Government has not scrapped its plans to sell off the public woodlands.

"We urge people to send a very clear message to this Conservative-led Government by joining our This Land is Our Land Campaign."
