To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they intend to ask the Lake District National Park Authority to defer the sale of any sites of land where an application has been made to register the site as an asset of community value for a sufficient length of time to allow the application to be determined.

Central Government has no powers to require a National Parks Authority to sell or not to sell land. It would be inappropriate for it to interfere in such a process. Regardless of sale, the regulations require the responsible authority to make a decision on listing as an asset of community value within 8 weeks of nomination.
