HC Deb 02 November 1938 vol 340 c199
29. Mr. W. Roberts (for Mr. Mander)

asked the Minister of Health whether he is now able to state the policy of the Government on the subject of national parks?

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Health (Mr. Bernays)

My right hon. Friend is giving careful consideration to the recommendations on the control of development generally, and particularly in areas including the sea coast much frequented by the public during holidays which have been made to him by his Advisory Committee when they reported recently on the preservation of the countryside.

Mr. Roberts

Can we have any indication when a decision may be arrived at?

Mr. Bernays

No, Sir.
