HC Deb 20 March 1962 vol 656 c31W
53. Mr. Owen

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what representation he has received from Morpeth Rural District Council concerning the public danger of barbed wire and antitank traps at Cresswell; what action is being taken to clear the area; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Rippon

The Council have asked if steps could be taken to remove these temporary defence works, and we are in touch with them. My right hon. Friend has explained to them the conditions under which financial assistance can be given towards the cost of restoring the land.
