HC Deb 08 March 1945 vol 408 cc2222-3
58. Mr. Edmund Harvey

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning, what action has been taken to implement the recommendations of the Scott Committee with regard to the marking of public footpaths and bridlepaths; and whether the local authorities have been requested to take steps to carry out these recommendations.

The Minister of Town and Country Planning (Mr. W. S. Morrison)

I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given on the 21st December last. I have not yet received the report in question, but understand that work on its preparation is proceeding as rapidly as the exigencies of war permit.

Mr. Harvey

Would my right hon. Friend say whether the local authorities, in the meantime, are taking any steps to mark footpaths and bridlepaths in view of the urgency of the matter?

Mr. Morrison

Yes, Sir. I understand that most of them are interesting themselves in this matter.
