§ Mr. Lamborn
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is satisfied with the operation of the Caravan Sites Act in the area of the Inner London boroughs generally and in particular in the London borough of Southwark.
§ Mr. John Silkin
Despite the difficulty of making suitable land available several Inner London boroughs have provided or propose to provide sites for gipsies in accordance with their duty under the Act. Southwark initially applied for exemption from this duty but is not pursuing the 328W matter pending the outcome of its current search for a suitable site.
