Vote 29 - Environment, Climate and Communications
Chapter 9 - Remediation of Landfill Sites

Mr. Mark Griffin:

I do not know whether, in the afforestation piece, which is just a general category that is described in the information I have, money has been allocated to hedgerows. The important comment to make is that this is a notional allocation. We are not saying a chunk of money from the ETS has been specifically assigned to support these activities but, from an accounting perspective, these are the activities against which the funding has been assigned.
