§ Mr. Brocklebank-Fowler
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is his assessment of the extent of the damage to the sea defences in the Norfolk, North-West constituency as a result of the storm on 11th January.
§ Mr. Strang
Responsibility for sea defences rests with the drainage authorities. I understand from the Anglian Water Authority that the defences along a considerable length of the constituency coastline have been damaged but that the breaches have now been temporarily filled.
