§ Mr. Critchley
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will now make a designation order on the Minley Road, Cove, site now that the county council alternative gipsy site at Star Hill, Hartley Witney, is open.
§ Mr. John Silkin
I have no power to designate individual sites. Outside Greater London a designation order under342W Section 12 of the Caravan Sites Act 1968 may be made only in respect of the whole area of a county. As regards the particular sites mentioned, I understand that Star Hill cannot accommodate all the gipsies from Minley Road and that the county council is considering further alternative provision.
