HC Deb 16 December 1970 vol 808 cc356-7W
108. Mr. Milne

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will introduce legislation to prevent the removal of sand from beaches throughout Great Britain in order to protect natural amenities; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Graham Page

There are already the powers in the Town and Country Planning Acts and the Coast Protection Act to deal with this matter.
