HC Deb 16 February 1978 vol 944 cc300-1W
Mr. Kenneth Clarke

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what proposals he has to amend the Mobile Homes Act 1975, in the light of the decision of the Court of Appeal in the case of Taylor v Calvert, Times Law Report 2nd February 1978.

Mr. Armstrong

The implications of this decision will not be clear until the complete report of the judgment is available. In any case we have already made it clear that in our view there are certain weaknesses in the Mobile Homes Act 1975 and that we favour the introduction of new legislation to give more broadly based protection to residents by imposing implied terms into residential contracts.
