§ 75. Mr. Mitchison
asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that the ammunition on Mr. H. R. Overman's farm at Arthingworth, Northamptonshire, has been potentially dangerous for more than a year and continues to hinder cropping; and when he intends to complete its removal.
§ Mr. G. R. Strauss:
I regret that, owing to a shortage of inspection staff and to the severe winter weather, which interrupted the sea-dumping programme, the removal of this ammunition has not yet been completed. Every effort is being made to clear the remaining acre by the end of the year.
