HC Deb 29 February 1928 vol 214 c440W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his attention has been drawn to the damage caused to the sea walls on the Essex coast during the recent floods; to the fact that it will cost upwards of £30,000 to repair such damage; and to the fact that, unless such walls are repaired, a large area of agricultural land will revert permanently to the sea; and if it is the intention of the Government to assist in saving this area of agricultural land by granting financial assistance?


I am fully aware of the situation, but I am afraid that I have nothing to add to the reply which I gave to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Maldon (Lieut.-Colonel Ruggles-Brise), on 9th February.

Forward to
