§ Lord Hardy of Wath
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they have considered the general implication of the Flamborough Judgment of 1996 concerning enclosure hedgerows. [HL136]
§ Lord Whitty:
The Government have considered the implication of the Flamborough Judgment of 1996. This suggested that obligations under the old enclosure Acts and awards may still be enforceable through the courts. These obligations are enforceable between private persons and are civil disputes. As we have indicated previously, the Government have no powers to intervene or to enforce these matters.
