HC Deb 08 April 1952 vol 498 cc2481-2
28. Mr. G. R. Howard

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will take steps to have the coast-line of the county of Cornwall designated as a national park.

Mr. H. Macmillan

No, Sir. It is for the National Parks Commission to make a submission to me.

Mr. Howard

Has my right hon. Friend not had any representations from the National Parks Commission in view of the recent statement in a certain newspaper of 20th March?

Mr. Macmillan

I understand that they are making a survey of the whole area.

Mr. Philip Noel-Baker

If the Minister does receive representations, will he give them a sympathetic hearing, in view of the warm support that there would be for them from many people besides the inhabitants of Cornwall?

Mr. Macmillan

Yes, I am always sympathetic.
