§ 65. Mr. T. COOK
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that ordnance survey maps for the county of Norfolk are now obsolete by 30 years; and will he state when it is hoped to bring these maps up to date?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Ramsbotham)
I am aware that the ordnance survey maps of the county of Norfolk as a whole were last revised in the years 1900 to 1906; but those maps which cover boroughs and urban districts, representing nearly two-fifths of the county, were revised in the years 1925 to 1927. The general question of the revision of ordnance survey maps is under consideration by a Departmental Committee, of which my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster is chairman, and in this connection I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave to the hon. and gallant Member for Newbury (Brigadier-General Brown) on 27th February, and of which I am sending him a copy.
§ Mr. GARRO-JONES
Is it still the intention of the Government to utilise the method of air survey to assist them in carrying out this survey?
