§ 74. Mr. Parker
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will prepare both short and long-term schemes for land reclamation around the Wash.
§ Sir T. Dugdale
The enclosure of saltings formed around the Wash must be a gradual process as the land becomes ripe for reclamation. It is for the owners of the land behind the existing sea embankment to undertake this work, but my Department will continue to give such practical help as it can in developing proposals.
