HC Deb 27 January 1960 vol 616 cc40-1W
Mr. van Straubenzee

asked the Secretary of State for War upon what date he obtained the consent of the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food under Section 194 (2) of the Law of Property Act, 1925, to the construction of a metalled road from east of West Mil Tor to the summit of Yes Tor, near Okehampton.

Mr. Soames

This is not a metalled road. An existing track, many years old, has been improved by filling in holes and applying a dressing of sand and peat. No tarmac or other metal has been used. I am advised that the Act does not apply to work of this nature.
