HC Deb 10 March 1938 vol 332 cc2110-1
65. Viscount Elmley

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the increased danger from floods that will be caused by spring tides in the Horsey area on or about 17th March, he will consider the advisability of arranging for units of the corps of Royal Engineers to assist with the precautions that are being taken there?

The Minister of Agriculture (Mr. W. S. Morrison)
