In cases relating to GAA property claims are usually submitted in the name of trustees who are the legal owners of the property which has been damaged. The trustees' name does not always make reference to the GAA and the Compensation Agency's computer database does not therefore identify these as GAA claims. Since 2008-09 the Compensation Agency has kept a separate manual record of claims relating to GAA property.

Most of the 157 SPS claims remaining to be paid involve probate or legal issues, for which information is required from external parties. It is therefore not possible to predict when these payments will be made. Some claims may not receive a payment.
David T.C. Davies: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what recent estimate the Forestry Commission has made of the future availability of biomass from forests managed by the Commission. 
Huw Irranca-Davies: The Forestry Commission maintains comprehensive records of the forests it manages including area, species, age, growth rates and intended management. This data is used to create and update its forecasts of future production.
Current estimates are that the public forest estate in England will produce 1.4 million cubic metres of timber per annum over the next 10 years and that to harvest significantly more would not be sustainable.
Further information on the production and use of biomass and timber is included in the Commission's Forestry Statistics booklet. The 2009 edition has just been published and I have arranged for a copy to be placed in the Library of the House.
