§ 47. Brigadier Medlicott
asked the Prime Minister if he will take steps to make one Government Department primarily responsible for dealing with the problem of resisting the erosive action of the sea around the coast of England.
§ Mr. Boothby
May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he will bear in mind that Scotland also has a coast?
§ Lieut. - Commander Joynson -Hicks
Will the right hon. Gentleman also bear in mind that erosion has been greatly increased by the lack of repairs to sea defences owing to the war, and that these sea defences have not yet been repaired?
