§ Mr. Lubbock
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he is satisfied that local authorities are making adequate use of their powers under the Caravan Site (Control and Development) Act, 1960, to ensure that residential caravan sites are properly supplied with basic amenities; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. MacColl
Local authorities are required by the Act to have regard to the model standards specified by the Minister when they issue licences for caravan sites. My right hon. Friend is satisfied that these standards make adequate provision for basic amenities, but he has no responsibility for the terms of individual licences.
