HC Deb 20 February 1935 vol 298 c337

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that the Metropolitan Police take action when danger or actual obstruction is caused by vehicles standing in the highways; and will he request the police to see that this policy is more closely followed in the central parts of London, as the present use of the highways as parking places has been declared by the Minister of Transport to be a source of danger to human life?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir John Gilmour)

The Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis informs me that the police in central London are fully alive to the desirability of taking action in cases of the kind referred to, and no fresh instructions on the subject are considered necessary.


Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that Quebec Street, near the Marble Arch, is almost completely blocked by cars?
