§ 76. Mr. Chetwynd
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what progress is being made with the Pennine Way and the Thames riverside footpath.
§ Mr. Marples
The local authorities concerned are now negotiating the new rights of way needed to complete the Pennine Way.
To repair and complete the Thames riverside walk would, my right hon. Friend is afraid, cost a lot of money. An estimate has been got out and the National Parks Commission are, he understands, considering this; but it may be that they will conclude that action must be deferred.
