§ 47. Sir B. Janner
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will introduce legislation to assist local authorities in dealing with the problem of clearing beaches of such undesirable objects as growing prickly weeds, remnants of old food, and black, seaweed-covered stones.
§ Mr. MacColl
Local authorities already have powers, under the Public Health Acts and in many cases as the owners of beaches to deal with problems of this kind. My right hon. Friend is unaware of any feeling amongst them that these powers need to be extended but he will gladly consider any evidence my hon. Friend cares to send me on this point.
