asked Her Majesty's Government:
What measures they are taking to ensure that Britain's national parks will be able to uphold their statutory purposes during and after the foot and mouth crisis. [HL1796]

We have asked National Park Authorities to produce estimates of extra costs they have incurred and loss of income resulting from the effects of foot and mouth. We are committed to ensuring that the Park Authorities continue to fulfil their statutory duties.
