§ MR. HARDY (Kent, Ashford)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he can now state what action he intends to take with reference to the protection of the foreshore on the War Office land at Hythe between the Dymchurch redoubt and the musketry ranges, and especially with regard to the portion of the foreshore where the sea broke through during last winter.† See(4) Debates, cxliv., 1010.
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE WAR OFFICE (Mr. BROMLEY DAVENPORT, Cheshire, Macclesfield)
Measures are being taken to protect the foreshore in question by means of groynes, but no final decision on the subject can be arrived at until the result of the observations which are being taken of the action of the sea is ascertained.
§ MR. BROMLEY DAVENPORT
I take it the hon. Member thinks the foreshore is in serious danger. That is just what we are watching to ascertain.
