§ Mr. Bryant Godman Irvine
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment in view of the approaching winter, if he will clarify the emergency works of coast protection referred to in his Department's letter of 9th September 1975 to the hon. Member for Rye, regarding the complaint of Mr. Clive Tarry of Cooden, Sussex; and when the visit of a representative of the Coast Protection Authority, promised soon at the beginning of August and very shortly in the letter of 9th September 1975, may be expected.
§ Mr. Denis Howell
My Department is considering a major scheme proposed by Rother District Council. In the meantime the District Council is undertaking certain emergency works to deal with the hazards for the approaching winter.
I shall write again to the hon. Member about development since he received my letter of 9th October.
