§ 43. Mr. Golding
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, how many public footpaths were taken out of use in the past year.
§ Mr. Michael Heseltine
My Department has records of public path closure 371W orders only where Ministerial action is involved either in making an order or in confirming an opposed order made by a local authority. During 1970 there were in England 33 such orders.
