§ Mr. Hendry
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in order to encourage holiday caravanning in the Highlands, he will exercise his power to 41W relax in that area certain of the requirements of the Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act.
§ Mr. Maclay
As contemplated when the Bill was before the House, and after consulting the county councils concerned, I have made an Order extending the statutory exemptions from control in this area. This Order, published today,42W provides that in the counties of Argyll, Caithness, Inverness, Ross and Cromarty, Sutherland, Orkney and Zetland, on any holding of two acres or more, up to three caravans at any one time may be accommodated without a site licence and without planning permission during the period 1st April to 30th September in any year.
