HC Deb 21 October 1987 vol 120 c796W
Mr. David Porter

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will clarify the new arrangements for local authorities funding of non emergency sea defence work; if he will make a statement about sea defences; and if he will make it his policy to treat sea defence as a national responsibility, rather than a coastal authority matter.

Mr. Gummer

I shall reply to my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
