§ 131. Mr. Cuthbert
asked the Secretary of State for War if, in view of the danger to holiday-makers and the needs of agriculture, he will now state on what date the clearance and release of the areas on the South Downs will be completed.170W
§ Mr. Lawson
Since I answered the hon. Member's previous. Question on this subject on l6th April a further 2,500 acres have been cleared and are in process of release. I regret that I cannot yet say when the process of clearance will be completed, but the work is being carried out as quickly as the shortage of technical personnel and equipment permit.
