In a letter to the Senedd’s Public Accounts Committee, the Chief Executive of Natural Resources Wales (NRW), Clare Pillman, said the organisation was making progress addressing the failures which led to a damning report on their management of timber (pdf).

NRW commissioned Grant Thornton to review progress to daye and they concluded that while there was still a long way to go, “We consider that progress to date has been good.”

The Chief Executive added: “I fully understand the scale and complexity of what we are doing here. The change and improvement needed is significant and the cultural shift required cannot be underestimated. I am very conscious of this and remain committed to this challenge, but I can assure you that we are moving in the right direction.”
