HC Deb 23 October 1945 vol 414 c1965W
Lieut.-Commander Joynson-Hicks

asked the Secretary of State for War what progress has been made in the removal of unexploded missiles in the South Downs; and when he expects to be able to hand over these areas so that they can again be used for food production.

Mr. Lawson

One area has now been completely cleared and clearance is proceeding as rapidly as possible in two other areas. In the remaining cases it has been found necessary to keep the land in use a little longer but it is hoped to free it for clearance within the next two or three months.
