§ MR. BROADHURST
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether his attention has been called to the serious extent of landslip on the north-east coast of Norfolk during the last few months; and whether the Government will, if asked, place at the disposal of the local authority any expert advice it may desire as to means to be taken to prevent the alarming and increasing destruction of property in that district?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY
My attention has been drawn to the rather alarming facts alluded to in the Question, and the Board of Trade inform me that they are prepared to send down, if necessary, an officer of the Department to inspect the locality and confer with the local authorities on the subject. More than that it is impossible to do.
