HC Deb 16 October 1945 vol 414 cc963-4W
Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will issue instructions that will ensure the immediate cessation of the explosions on Cliffe Marshes, Kent, which are causing damage to property, suffering to the residents, and danger in the village.

Mr. Lawson

Instructions have been issued for the cessation of Army demolitions on Cliffe Marshes, Kent. The Royal Navy has also used this site on infrequent occasions. I understand that it may be necessary for the Navy to undertake further demolitions on Cliffe Marshes in the future, but these will be only isolated cases and even then only in an emergency.
