86. Mr. E. Evans

asked the Minister of Health whether anti-tank concrete blocks will be made available for coastal defence works in suitable cases.

Mr. J. Edwards

The use of anti-tank concrete blocks is given consideration where they are in a suitable position.

87. Mr. E. Evans

asked the Minister of Health if he will make a statement on the question of financial assistance to local authorities engaged in coastal defence works; whether this assistance will be made retrospectively; and whether he is proposing to co-ordinate defence works in neighbouring localities.
