HC Deb 27 April 1948 vol 450 c37W
82. Briggadier Peto

asked the Minister of Works whether he is aware that the beaches at Woolacombe are still not cleared of barbed wire defence works; that many complaints of injuries were received from visitors last summer; and whether he will take some action which will cause the clearance of these beaches before the coming tourist season.

Mr. Durbin

I hope the clearance of wire from the beaches at Woolacombe will start next month, and that the greater part will be cleared before the end of the season.
