Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The Assistant Secretary General in my Department who has responsibility for the Forestry Divisions also has responsibility for the Agri-Environment & On Farm Investment Division that will deliver the Agri-Environment Climate Measure (AECM) as outlined in the CAP Strategic Plan. The design and delivery of the Eco-schemes are the responsibility of another Assistant Secretary. As the Deputy is aware, my Department appointed a Director of Forestry with direct responsibility for forestry policy and operations in November 2021.
