HC Deb 23 November 1962 vol 667 cc158-9W
Mr. C. Johnson

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if he will give the respective dates on which the definite maps for Buckinghamshire, Lancashire, and Radnorshire, respectively, were prepared by the county council, notified to his Department, and reported to the Ordnance Survey authorities.

Mr. Corfield

The information is:


The county council gave notice on 5th July, 1957, that they had prepared the map. Two copies were sent to my Department on 23rd July, 1957. One of these has remained available in the Department for public inspection; the other was to have been sent on to the Ordnance Survey Department, but was found to be in a form inadequate for their purpose. Work is in hand to remedy this so that the rights of way information will be available for inclusion in the next reprint of the O.S. maps concerned provided there is sufficient cover on rights of way for the contiguous Counties which appear on the same sheet. The latter was not available at the time of the last reprint of these sheets.


The county council gave notice on 31st May, 1962, that they had prepared the map. One copy for retention in my Department was received on 17th August. The copy for the Ordnance Survey Department is expected from the county council in the near future.


The county council gave notice on 29th June, 1962, that they had prepared the map and sent two copies to my Department on the same day. One copy was forwarded to the Ordnance Survey Department on 17th July.
