§ Mr. Farr
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what plans he has to urge local authorities to expedite their responsibilities for the provision of caravan sites for itinerants under the Caravan Sites Act.
§ Mr. Marks
My right hon. Friend, like his predecessors since the Act came into operation in 1970, is continually urging authorities to do this. The Cripps Report, published last year, contains recommendations designed to expedite site provision, and it is hoped that the response to the report will be published soon.
