HL Deb 25 June 2003 vol 650 c30WA
Lord Clark of Windermere

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether Circular 84/50 dated 15th March 1950, regarding National Park boundaries, is "extant". [HL3436]

Lord Whitty

Our research has been inconclusive. We have found no evidence that the circular is still in force but equally no evidence of its cancellation. As the circular dealt mainly with the immediate tasks of the then National Parks Commission, it was probably cancelled long ago. It does not appear in the main current reference works and, even if still technically extant, it should certainly be regarded as defunct.
