HC Deb 05 November 1993 vol 231 c487W
Mr. Aspinwall

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many gipsies are currently resident in the county of Avon.

Mr. Baldry

My Department carries out a biannual count of gipsy caravans on the basis of information provided by district and borough councils. The latest count, on 21 July 1993, found 406 caravans with gipsies residing in or resorting to the county of Avon on that day.
