HC Deb 15 December 1971 vol 828 cc105-6W
80. Mr. Scott-Hopkins

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many representations he has received asking that the Peak Park Planning Board for the National Peak Park should retain its existing powers, and in particular those relating to precepting on local authorities within the National Park.

Mr. Graham Page

My right hon. Friend has received a number of representations recently about the form of administration of national parks generally. As regard the Peak Park, he has already said that he proposes to retain the Planning Board. It will keep its existing powers, including its percepting powers.
