HC Deb 04 November 1959 vol 612 cc1004-5
2. Mr. Iremonger

asked the Minister of Transport if he will make a statement on the policy of Her Majesty's Government in regard to the problem of the permanent parking of private cars outside their owners' residences in council estates and in other residential areas in Greater London.

Mr Marples

The use of residential side streets for long-term parking involves complex problems of law, social habits and amenity. My Department has been tackling these problems with others who are concerned. I will do my best to solve them; but there is no easy solution.

Mr. Iremonger

Will my right hon. Friend give some indication when we may expect to have these proposals put before the House? How long does he expect to take before some decision is made?

Mr. Marples

Obviously, I cannot give any definite date.
