§ Sir L. Heald
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what action he proposes to take on the numerous problems that arise in connection with residential caravans.
§ Mr. H. Brooke
I am setting on foot an investigation into the nature and extent of the problems which arise in connection with caravans used as residential accommodation, the underlying causes of these problems, and the views of those concerned. Sir Arton Wilson has accepted my invitation to conduct this investigation and will begin work almost at once.
The investigation is into the facts of the situation; I am not asking Sir Arton to make recommendations. In the light of his report, which will be published, the Government will reach conclusions on policy and consider whether and, if so, what amending legislation is required.
