HC Deb 15 December 1987 vol 124 cc473-4W
63. Mr. Amess

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment how many holiday villages have been established in the United Kingdom since May 1979.

Mr. Lee

Detailed figures are not available. However, there has been investment both in a number of new self-catering developments and in improvements to existing holiday villages since 1979. The opening of Center Parc's all-year round holiday village in Sherwood forest earlier this year has introduced an innovative concept to the United Kingdom which I hope will stimulate further new developments and improvements.
