§ Mr. Farr
asked the Minister of Transport (1) if he is aware that pedestrian use of the public footpath at Calver Hill Quarry, Sapcote, has recently been made impossible; and if he will now arrange to have this restored;
(2) by whose authority the public footpath at Calver Hill Quarry, Sapcote, has been blocked.75W
Mr. Bob Brown
I am aware that one of the routes that this footpath is claimed to follow has been obstructed without authority. Leicestershire County Council is the highway authority for the footpath. Any restoration that may be necessary on determination by the county council of the correct route would be a matter for the Blaby Rural District Council or, in default, by the county council.
