HC Deb 04 February 1980 vol 978 c36W
Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps he has taken to ensure that the Amble north pier breakwater is repaired.

Mr. Fox

My officials have recently had an informal discussion with representatives of the Alnwick district council about this problem. It is now a matter for the council to formulate proposals and submit them for consideration under the Coast Protection Act 1949 and I understand that it has this in hand.
