§ 32. Sir WILLIAM DAVISON
asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the fact that three lakes in the Lake District, with the lands adjoining, are at present being offered for sale; and whether the Government propose to take any steps to assist in the preservation of these national beauty spots for the nation?
§ Mr. SHAKESPEARE
The reply to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, my right hon. Friend understands that the position is to be discussed at a meeting of local authorities to be held for the purposes of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1932, in the very near future.
§ Sir W. DAVISON
Do the Government recognise that the preservation of these places of natural beauty has just as refining an influence on people as the possession by the British Museum of the Codex Sinaiticus?
