§ Mr. Meacher
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why, in390W
vent the unauthorised use of metal detectors on open spaces and countryside areas owned and managed by the county council.
§ Mr. Raison
I understand that the Home Office had correspondence several months ago with Guildford and Waverley district councils about restricting the use of metal detectors, but we have received no representations from Surrey county council on this matter.
