HC Deb 16 December 1954 vol 535 cc180-1W
79. Mr. Parker

asked the Minister of Agriculture the total acreage recovered for agriculture from The Wash since 1914; whether he will place a map in the Library showing the various reclamation schemes carried out with relevant dates; and what schemes are in progress at the moment.

Mr. Amory

Some 6,300 acres have been reclaimed from The Wash since 1914, and a scheme for the reclamation of 1,100 acres is in progress. I have arranged for a map to be placed in the library.
