HC Deb 18 November 1937 vol 329 cc557-8
30. Mr. Day

asked the Home Secretary particulars of the parking places in the Metropolitan Area where the Commissioner of Police has exercised the power invested in him under the Road Vehicle Lighting Regulations, 1928, to exempt from lighting requirements vehicles standing in any of the recognised parking places; and in how many cases have applications been made to him and been refused for this restriction?

Sir S. Hoare

I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate the particulars asked for in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Mr. Day

Has the Minister any information as to how many of these requests have been refused?

Sir S. Hoare

No, Sir; I could not say without notice. I am not sure whether I could with notice, but if the hon. Member will put the question down I will see whether I can.

Following are the particulars:

The power referred to has been exercised by the Commissioner in relation to the following parking places, where cars are permitted to stand without lights during the hours of darkness:

There is no record of the refusal of any application to the Commissioner in connection with the exercise of these powers.
