HC Deb 27 June 1979 vol 969 c230W
27. Mr. Marks

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if it is his intention to pay grants to county councils for the development of caravan sites for gipsies pending the reintroduction of the Caravan Sites Bill [Lords].

Mr. Monro

We shall continue to pay grants for gipsy caravan sites during the present financial year, as provided for by Parliament, and we are considering the grant position beyond that date as part of our current examination of the need for further legislation about accommodation for gipsies.
