I think that's what the UK wiring regs mandate for new installations.  And
have done for many years.
But there may be older installations offering what was permitted before CEE
17 came along unless
legislation has been passed mandating they be replaced.

It's fairly rare for legislation like that with regard to wiring unless
there have been serious problems
with the old stuff (like aluminium wiring in housing).  Fit (or replace) a
consumer unit and it has
to have MCBs and an RCD in a metal case.  But if you have MCBs and an RCD
in a plastic
case (acceptable until recently) you don't have to replace it.  If your
consumer unit has fuses rather
than MCBs and doesn't have an RCD you don't have to replace it.  So, unless
somebody can
point to relevant legislation, I'd expect pre-CEE 17 installations to still
exist - with a properly
waterproofed enclosure BS1363 outlets would do the job, albeit with a lower
current rating.

So, on the principle of verifiability, if a UK camping site advertises
electrical hook-ups but doesn't
specify the connector, I wouldn't tag it as CEE 17 blue even though it is
almost certain to be so.
