Atkins Report
   United Kingdom. The report on the working of the Caravan Sites Act of 1968 prepared for the British government in 1991 by a firm of private consultants, W. S. Atkins Planning and Management Consultancy. The researchers were G. Clark and D. Todd. The report accepts that the Caravan Sites Act was intended to enable Gypsies to continue their traditional way of life while using official caravan sites and criticizes local councils for not carrying out the provisions of the Act (which has since been repealed). The report also accepted the idea of "designation," by which Gypsies were barred from certain areas of England and Wales.
