§ Sir Peter Mills
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will take steps to maintain the loop road on Dartmoor at Okehampton in view of the importance for defence training and the local reserve service.
§ Mr. Wiggin
In response to a recent consultation document circulated by the Duchy of Cornwall to many interested parties, my Department has reaffirmed the need to maintain the loop road in sufficient repair to allow the necessary military vehicles access to the Okehampton ranges. I understand that the Duchy is now considering the replies it has received.
