HC Deb 05 August 1975 vol 897 cc113-4W
Sir John Rodgers

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what recent representations he has received on the need for introducing immediate legislation on the rating of caravans with the aim of putting the rating authorities in the position where they can send one demand to each site owner in its area; and what action he proposes to take.

Mr. Oakes

My right hon. Friend has received representations from the Association of District Councils and four individual rating authorities asking for legislation of this sort. As I told the House on 24th July, my right hon. Friend is considering these representations and I shall make a further statement when this consideration is complete.
