HC Deb 27 July 1955 vol 544 cc144-5W
71. Mr. Edward Evans

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware of the public concern at the closing by his Department of the public footpath along the cliff adjoining the Royal Air Force station, Hopton, Suffolk; and, in view of the deprivation of the rights of the public, if he will restore the path to its former use.

Mr. Ward

The path was not closed by the Air Ministry but collapsed owing to a fall of the cliff. We are now considering with the local authorities whether a substitute can be provided through Air Ministry land.
