asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when the Government will provide the balance of cash needed to repair the paths and sea defences adjacent to the landing beach on Lundy island ; what is the anticipated cost; and what shares will be borne by other parties.

I cannot say at present. The Department's current cash limit for coast protection this year is already committed to other schemes.I understand that the estimated cost of the work is about £100,000 and that contributions will also be made by Devon county council and Trinity House ; the Torridge district council's proposed contribution will be reconsidered for loan sanction and exchequer grant aid when resources become available. The exact amounts will depend on the final cost of the work.
