HC Deb 16 February 1955 vol 537 cc366-7
22. Mr. Langford-Holt

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether his attention has been drawn to the "No Parking" signs placed on the pavements outside the Dorchester Hotel in Park Lane; and whether he will cause these signs to be removed on the grounds that they have no validity and obstruct the pavements.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I have asked the Westminster City Council, as highway authority, to look into this.

Mr. Langford-Holt

Is my right hon. Friend aware that there are appearing over London many of these pavement signs which are quite illegal and obstruct the traffic, and also that signs are appearing on the sides of houses and business premises, saying, "No Parking," for which there is no legal validity whatever?

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

In the first place, action on that is for the highway authority, which in the case to which my hon. Friend refers is the Westminster City Council. I will gladly draw the attention of whatever highway authority is concerned to any case which my hon. Friend has in mind.
