HC Deb 18 June 1951 vol 489 c10W
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.
