COMMUNITIES – PARK HOMES BILL – 19 October 2012

Dr Julian Lewis: I congratulate the hon. Lady [Annette Brooke] on her work. Does she agree that park home owners' residents associations have an important part to play in having good dialogue with the owners? I had a problem in getting recognition for a residents association. It was a great comfort to me to know that the hon. Lady and her group were batting for everybody on the issue, which eventually gave me the incentive to persevere until we secured that recognition.

[Annette Brooke: I thank the hon. Gentleman; that is absolutely right. We have to move towards co-operation and working together, rather than coercion. However, because we have the evidence – all the horrible stories – we have got to act today. Metaphorically, I raise my glass to justice for park home owners.]
