The Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee will take evidence on the management of ash dieback disease in Scotland from the Scottish Government Minister for Environment and Climate Change, Paul Wheelhouse, at its meeting on Wednesday 28 November.

Convener of the Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee Rob Gibson MSP said, Ash Dieback is a serious disease threatening ash trees in Scotland and the UK. It is critical that members probe the management and response to this disease and get an update on the spread of the disease in Scotlands woodland.

This is only one of a number of threats facing woodland in both Scotland and the UK, so members will also be questioning the Minister about the Scottish Governments management of other diseases more generally.
