HC Deb 19 November 1919 vol 121 cc933-4W

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that great inconvenience is caused to the public by the continued reservation for military use exclusively of the main road between Margate and Sandwich; and whether, in view of the fact that there is no longer any necessity to keep the public from the neighbourhood of Richborough, he will give instructions for this thoroughfare to be restored to the use of the public?


The main road between Sandwich, Margate and Rams- gate has been reopened to the public from Sunday, 16th November. Land still in, Government occupation has been enclosed by wire fencing, and the public will not be allowed to leave the road for the purpose of entering the works areas unless they are in possession of a permit from the Commandant, Headquarters Office, Stonar Camp, entitling them to do so.
