asked the Secretary of State for War when it is intended to remove the steel obstruction from the beach and lowland of Dunwich, Suffolk; and when it is intended to free this area from mines.

The local authority were approached in April, 1947, with a view to arrangements being made for the removal of these defence works by them at War Department expense; so far no reply has been received. Removal of the obstructions, if not carried out in this way, is a matter for the Ministry of Works if removal is in the public interest and is not secured by the payment of compensation. All mines have been cleared from this area.
