Mr. Chope

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.

This amendment adds a new clause and introduces a further section into the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. The new section has the same effect as that provided by clause 39, except that it applies to variations of charges of off-street parking places. It has been introduced in response to a request from the local authority associations.

Question put and agreed to.
