HC Deb 15 December 1949 vol 470 cc286-7W
58. Mr. Stokes

asked the Minister of Agriculture what steps he has taken to ensure that no subsidy is paid by his Department on sand removed by hauliers from above high water mark at both Mawgan Porth, Constantine Bay and Rock in Cornwall.

Mr. T. Williams

My main concern, so far as the payment of subsidy is concerned, is to ensure that the sand is suitable for, and is used for, liming agricultural land. But no subsidy has been paid in recent years in respect of sand removed from the beach at Mawgan Porth, and I am not aware that any has been paid on sand removed from above high water mark at Constantine Bay and Rock.
