§ Sir Richard Body
asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many acres of land are owned by his Department to which there is no right of public access at all; and how many such areas there were in 1976.
§ Mr. Freeman
Records are not maintained in a way that would enable this information to be provided. It is, however, Ministry of Defence policy to allow access for recreational purposes where such use is consistent with operational activity, security, safety and the activities of tenant farmers.
§ Mr. D. E. Thomas
