asked the Prime Minister if he will take steps to make one Government Department primarily responsible for dealing with the problem of resisting the erosive action of the sea around the coast of England.
The matter is under consideration.
May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he will bear in mind that Scotland also has a coast?
I understand that Scotland has a very lengthy coast, and it will not be forgotten.
:Will the right hon. Gentleman also bear in mind that erosion has been greatly increased by the lack of repairs to sea defences owing to the war, and that these sea defences have not yet been repaired?
That point shall be noted.
