asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether his attention has been drawn to the widespread protest which his decision to permit the removal of the top of Dulcote Hill, Wells, for the purpose of quarrying stone has occasioned; and what action he now proposes to take to preserve this skyline so essential to the setting of Wells City.

I am aware of these protests, which have apparently been made without knowledge of the terms of the permission which I have granted. The conditions attached to that permission impose limits on the area of quarrying in order to preserve that part of the skyline visible from the City.
