HC Deb 22 April 1947 vol 436 cc100-1W
Mr. Sharp

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning what action is taken by his Department to determine the width and type of surface of forest roads in proposed National Park areas; what are his recommendations in these respects in the case of forest roads in the Lake District; and whether the alterations now in progress to the occupation road running up Ennerdale conform with these recommendations and have received his approval.

Mr. Silkin

The matters referred to can be dealt with more appropriately in relation to the circumstances of particular cases than by general recommendations. As regards the last part of the Question, I have been in communication with the Forestry Commission, and am in agreement with the proposals.
