§ Mr. David Atkinson
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how much grant aid under the Coast Protection Act 1949 has been agreed for the coast protection works at Hengistbury head, Bournemouth.
§ Mrs. Fenner
The works at Hengistbury head are very complex and are being carried out in a number of district phases. Work has begun on stage one but my officials are awaiting certain financial information from Bournemouth borough council before the grant for this phase can be calculated. The costs and other details of the remaining stages have not yet been fully ascertained and I am therefore unable to determine grant on these phases at the moment.
