To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will make a statement on the report of the Park Homes Working Party. 
§ Mr. Raynsford
I am pleased to announce today the publication of the report of the Park Homes Working Party, copies of which have been placed in the Library of the House. I would like to thank the members of the Working Party for the work they have done over the last two years to consider the operation of the control regime applying to the residential park homes 505W sector. The Working Party has produced a large number of wide-ranging recommendations for changes to this regime.
The recommendations will need careful consideration, and it would be helpful therefore to have comments on them from interested bodies or individuals who have not already had a change to contribute to the report. I am requesting that any such comments are sent to my Department by 31 October. I will announce my conclusions on the recommendations in due course after that date.
