§ 26. Brigadier Mackeson
asked the Minister of Health what steps will be taken this winter to prevent further damage and loss of private and public property at Sandgate, where the sea defences and sea wall, which could not be maintained during the war, have in places been destroyed or undermined, thus exposing a considerable portion of Sandgate to immediate danger whenever a high tide coincides with a gale.
§ Brigadier Mackeson
In view of the very serious situation at this small place, which may soon easily become a tragedy if the work is not carried out quickly and efficiently, would the right hon. Gentleman very kindly review the whole situation once the Coast Protection Bill has become an Act?
