Following a comprehensive review of the Forestry Act, 1946, the Government approved the Heads of a new Forestry Bill in March 2009. The Office of the Parliamentary Counsel is drafting the new Bill and will deal with all legal issues arising. It is intended that the Bill will be published at the earliest possible date with a view to enacting it as soon as possible thereafter.
