Motion text

That this House recognises the importance of tropical rainforests in the balance of the global climate and is aware of the threat posed by illegal felling; believes that Britain should not be the recipient of illegally logged timber; further believes that all timber used in Government projects should be supplied from certified sustainable sources; notes that the timber used in the refurbishment of the Cabinet Office was from Cameroon for which no recognised certification scheme exists; is concerned that the Department for International Development has also recently installed rainforest timber in its property; and urges the Government to honour its pledges and cancel unsustainable timber contracts and to ensure that all suspect shipments are fully investigated and seized where appropriate.
