National park authorities are independent bodies, provided with their powers to dispose of land under the 1972 Local Government Act. Government has no powers to direct a national park authority to dispose or not to dispose of land or a particular piece of land and has no plans to bring before Parliament the Lake District National Park Authority proposals for land sale.
