In response to the campaign on the Ramblers' Manifesto, David said:
"The Secretary of State for EFRA will soon launch a public consultation on the future of agricultural and rural policy after the UK has left the EU. I would encourage the Ramblers Society and individuals to contribute their policy ideas to that consultation.
It is very important for the government and Buckinghamshire County Council to protect access to our public footpaths and bridleways. Our network of public rights of way plays an important role in this effort, so the process of recording them is being simplified to ensure no historic rights of way are lost. Work is also ongoing with Natural England to establish the England Coast Path. We must also ensure that our countryside remains inviting to visit."
