§ Mr. Rossi
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) how many land acquisition and management schemes have been submitted to him under Schedule 5 to the Community Land Act 1975; how many appear to him to require revision; and how many he intends to make himself;
(2) how many land acquisition and management schemes were made on or before 31st December 1975 pursuant to Section 16 of the Community Land Act 1975; in how many cases applications have been made for extensions of time and on what grounds; and in how many cases and to what dates such extensions have been granted.
§ Mr. John Silkin
The significant date for authorities was 1st February, when they were asked to submit their schemes. 797W So far 16 county areas have submitted them to me. My regional directors have been in touch with the rest and most of the remaining LAMS are expected within a month. I may have to consider imposing a scheme in about half a dozen cases.
