Forest sale plan defended by PM David Cameron

David Cameron defended government plans to sell off some forests in England by explaining he would give better safeguards than Labour did when it sold off woods.

He was answering a question from Labour MP Barry Sheerman at PMQs who claimed the government was taking forests from "the ordinary people".

The PM said the previous government sold off woodlands with no guarantees about access and habitats, but he was listening to arguments being put forward.
