HC Deb 16 February 1955 vol 537 cc364-5
16. Miss Ward

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether, in considering the introduction of parking meters, he will protect the interests of commercial travellers who might be adversely affected by such a system.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

It is precisely in order to protect the legitimate interests of motorists, including commercial travellers. who wish to leave their cars for short periods in congested urban areas that the experimental use of parking meters is being commended to Parliament.
