§ 17. Mr. REA (for Mr. MALLALIEU)
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether 1535 he has any further statement to make as to the proposed order limiting the right of the public to access to Rombalds Moor, in the West Riding of Yorkshire, and the right to lodge objections to it; and whether, in view of misunderstandings which have arisen, he will ensure that objectors have adequate time to prepare and lodge their objections?
§ Mr. ELLIOT
I am obliged to the hon. Member for giving me an opportunity of correcting a misstatement in my reply to the question which he put to me on the 12th July. The time specified for objections to the proposed order is three weeks from the latest date of publication of the notice of the order and such period expire to-day. Numbers objections to the proposed order have now been received, and a public inquiry will accordingly be held in the locality. Due notice of such inquiry will be given to all the objectors, and adequate time allowed for the preparation of their case. Any further objections presented in the meantime will be duly considered.
