Is my hon. Friend aware that of the 184 people who make up the members of the seven national park boards in England and Wales, only 42 live in the areas of the parks? Is he also aware that on the Peak district planning board, of the eight people appointed by the county council only one lives in the area of the Peak park? What other planning authorities are there where people are not directly elected or do not have to meet certain residential qualifications?
