South Lakes MP Tim Farron has secured a debate in Parliament on whether to bring about direct elections to the boards of National Park authorities across the UK.
Mr Farron says it is essential for National Park boards to contain elected representatives so they are accountable for their decisions.
Mr Farron says that controversial decisions taken by the Lake District national park board over its Brockhole site on the banks of Lake Windermere have served as a reminder of this issue.
Commenting, Tim said:
The debate will take place on Wednesday 28th November in Westminster Hall.
