HC Deb 07 February 1934 vol 285 c1142W

asked the Minister of Agriculture what steps are being taken to remove the cargo of scrap iron which is being washed along the shore from the steamer "Charles Jose," wrecked at Torcross, Slapton Sands, on 26th December, 1933, and which is causing damage to the nets of local fishermen?


The foreshore in question is leased by the Commissioners of Crown Lands to the Kingsbridge Rural District Council. The Commissioners have advised the council to take any necessary steps to remove or mitigate the nuisance, without prejudice to the question of legal responsibility, which is being investigated.
