§ Mr. Brocklebank-Fowler
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if, now that the major breaches in the sea defences are nearly repaired, he will make available manpower and resources to ensure that other storm damage to the sea walls in the Norfolk North-West constituency is completely repaired before the high spring tides forecast for 7th to 11th February.
§ Mr. Strang
The repair of these sea defences is a matter for the Anglian Water Authority. I understand that the repair work already in hand should enable the defences to withstand predicted tide levels in early February provided that there are no exceptionally adverse conditions. I have been assured that if the Authority needs additional help it can be made available.
