HC Deb 26 July 1966 vol 732 c224W
Mr. Carol Johnson

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government, in view of the fact that technological changes in agriculture, particularly with regard to ploughing, are making amendment of the law of rights of way a matter of urgency, whether he will introduce a separate Bill on this subject in advance of the Countryside Bill.

Mr. Crossman

Further discussions with interested bodies are required. But in principle I do not think that the question of rights of way ought to be considered in isolation from other problems of the countryside.
