HC Deb 17 June 1980 vol 986 c499W
Mr. Pawsey

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment in view of the unwieldy nature of the present procedures for dealing with objections to definitive footpath reviews, if he will take steps to streamline and expedite future consideration of such reviews and objections thereto.

Mr. Monro

We intend to include in the forthcoming Wildlife and Countryside Bill measures designed to simplify the definitive map review procedures and make them more flexible. Following consideration of the responses to a consultation paper issued last August our revised proposals will be described in an information paper to be published shortly.
